These 12-month residential fellowship are intended for a Ph.D. candidate, recent Ph.D., professor at any level seeking sabbatical support for a research project, or an independent scholar working closely with an Indigenous community on a project. Applications are open to scholars in all related fields and all periods of time, although preference will be given to those who have experience working with Native communities.
Native American Scholars Initiative
The Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI) complements the collaborative, community-engaged work undertaken by the Center for Native American and Indigenous Research. With funding from The Mellon Foundation, NASI promotes research in the field of Native American and Indigenous Studies and related fields by undergraduates, Native American scholars, Tribal College faculty members, and researchers who work closely with archives and Native communities. NASI offers annual opportunities through pre- and post-doctoral fellowships, undergraduate internships, workshops and other resources.
