Sealaska’s management of our forests allows us to provide social benefits to the communities in which we operate.
In 1988, Sealaska created a $2.5 million endowment to provide a foundation for supporting the education of its tribal member shareholders and descendants well into the future. Scholarships awarded by Sealaska Heritage Institute are given to students who are Sealaska tribal member shareholders or shareholder descendants.
In 2009, $373,000 in scholarship money was awarded to students.
Sealaska also has a very active internship program. Many of our former interns are business leaders in our local community, acting on Sealaska’s values to help build infrastructure and new revenue streams.
