Native American Mentoring Program
Increase opportunities for Biomedical Scienes faculty and students to support the focus of the Medical School on Native American Health by increasing opportunities for research based collaboration. This may include but not limited to promoting science experiences for Native American graduate students. Pilot funding for Native American undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty within the Biomedical Sciences Department is also available. The objective is to expand the pool of current and future Native American scientists who may consider faculty or leadership positions in higher education or medical professions. This program is a viable way to demonstrate our commitment to Native communities in the state of MN.
