                             Indians in providing education to the members of the tribe and other
                             qualified applicants through a community college, established by that
                             tribe, known as the Navajo Community College.

                             lege shall be designed and operated by the Navajo Tribe to insure that
                             the Navajo Indians and other qualified applicants have educational
                             opportunities which are suited to their unique needs and interests.

                             hereby authorized to be appropriated not to exceed $5,500,000 for con-
                             struction, plus or minus such amounts, if any, as may be justified by
                             reason of ordinary fluctuations from 1971 construction costs as indi-
                             cated by engineering cost indexes applicable to the types of construc-
                             tion involved, and an annual sum for operation and maintenance of the
                             college that does not exceed the average amount of the per capita con-
                             tribution made by the Federal Government to the education of Indian
                             students at federally operated institutions of the same type.
