Native American Graduate Research Assistantships
Support is Available for Native American Graduate Research Assistantships
Funding is available to support Native American students pursuing graduate degrees. Based on our first-year experience, the institution and Native American student will jointly submit the application by Friday, July 30, allowing us to make the award for the start of the summer.
Since the primary goal of the activity is to develop more qualified Tribal College faculty candidates, we can be flexible in terms of majors and student requirements. Students may be current graduate students — or incoming students — and full- or part-time students. The funding can be used to pay the student stipend or hourly, tuition remission for assistantships and indirect costs. We seek to support as many students as possible so will leverage other funds that might be available to support the students.
See the Application .pdf for full details.
The Graduate Research Assistantship application submission deadline is Friday, July 30, 2021, by 5 p.m. (MDT).
