The Native Nations Institute, part of the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy at the University of Arizona, offers research and travel funding for graduate students engaging in Indigenous nation building related research projects, especially work on contemporary Indigenous issues that have practical policy implications and the potential to be useful to Native leaders and decision-makers. Related fields include, but are not limited to, Indigenous governance, health policy, economic development, or community development interests.
At the Native Nations Institute, we’re eager to support the development of scholars and researchers focused on Indigenous nation building. This fund is a way to learn even more about nation building from the latest research in a variety of fields.
