SAIGE is proud to announce our two Carol Jorgensen Scholarship recipients for 2023.

  • Denise Flores Frazier, Reno-Sparks Indian Colony
  • Aiyanna Tanyan, Seminole Nation of Oklahoma

Both are Environmental Science majors at Haskell Indian Nation University. They each received a monetary award and will receive registration and travel support to attend the SAIGE National Training Program in Spokane, WA in June.

SAIGE established this award to honor the memory and legacy of Carol Jorgensen whose service to her family, community, country, and Mother Earth was an inspiration for all.

Carol was Tlingit from the Yandestake Village in southeast Alaska and was part of the Eagle/Killer Whale Fin House of Klukwan. She served many years in public service, and finally as Director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s American Indian Environmental Office. She had a deep connection to our shared Earth and was a passionate advocate for protecting the environment and human health in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
