The Friends of Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site, Inc. announce that applications are being accepted
for the 2015 annual scholarship for Navajo and Hopi college students. The funds for our scholarships are raised
through memberships, activities at Hubbell TPNHS including the Auctions, and other off-site events. The scholarships
are established in honor of three weavers (Evelyn Curley, Mary Lee Begay, and Helen Kirk) who spent
many years demonstrating their art to people in the Visitor Center. In August of 2013, the Friends group awarded $19,250 in Scholarships.
The following are the recepients of this year's scholarships:
We are very happy that during 2014 we were able to award scholarships to five very deserving third and fourth-year college students.
