Student-to-Student Scholarship Fund

Seasons greetings! This month we initiated the Student-to-Student Scholarship Fund. This fund directly helps future students attend CTSN classes.

THANK YOU for shaing in the Coyote Trails journey and teachings. It is in this spirit we ask you to think about giving back. Your help makes it possible for us to carry onward.
