Dear Class of 2026,
Attached is a flyer describing a free, all-expenses-paid opportunity for a one-week summer course in Indigenous Research Methodologies. The course is for first-year students—rising sophomores from Native American/Indigenous backgrounds. This program is offered by College Horizons, an educational access organization with a focus on Native American and Indigenous students. Selected participants will receive a stipend of $550. This is a program focused on increasing opportunities for Native peoples and is supported by College Horizons, but prospective applicants need not be alumni of that program. This program is ideal for first-year students who are curious about how research can contribute to tribal sovereignty, cultural flourishing, and other aspects of Indigenous values. They are actively accepting applications on a rolling basis, even though the initial deadline has passed. The application is on this link: https://collegehorizons.org/programs/scholars-program/
If you like to speak with someone directly about the program, you may contact Mikaela Crank with the details below.
