Tatitlek, and the Copper Mountain Foundation

The Copper Mountain Foundation (herein referred to as CMF) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit that is fully funded, fully operated, and established by The Tatitlek Corporation (herein referred to as TTC). CMF currently has a program that provides scholarships and career grants for original enrollees and descendants of original enrollees of TTC. To be eligible to receive funding, a student must be an original enrollee of TTC or a lineal descendant of an original enrollee (by birth or adoption). Original enrollees of TTC either resided in the Native Village of Tatitlek or their families resided in Tatitlek at the time of enrollment in TTC. Today, scholarship applicants very often continue to come from a rural area within Alaska such as the Village of Tatitlek. The college graduation rate of rural students continues to be one of the lowest in the state. To address this problem, CMF created the scholarship program to offer financial assistance for education and career certificates for the enrollees.
