Dull Knife Certifies EntrepreneursFeb 15th, 1996 | By tcj | Category: 7-4: Wildlife Management, Tribal College News
Last fall, Dull Knife Memorial College launched an 18-month Entrepreneur Certificate Program. The college in south-central Montana received one of 10 grants awarded by the Theodore R. and Vivian M. Johnson Scholarship Foundation to tribal colleges for entrepreneurship scholarships. The program is designed to provide the fundamentals for students who will be developing and operating small businesses. With its grant, Dull Knife funds student scholarships covering the first year of the 18 month program.
Theodore Johnson, Sr. created the foundation when he was 90 years old. Since 1991, the foundation has provided $300,000 to Indian colleges through the American Indian College Fund. After his death, his son Ted took over the foundation. Ted developed the entrepreneurship scholarships, reflecting the senior Johnson’s dedication to the free enterprise system.
