- Through the NARCH program funded by the Indian Health service and NIH, the Board is able to provide a limited number of scholarships to support research career development in the biomedical sciences. Historically, the NARCH fellowships have supported AI/AN students pursuing MPH degrees, other masters degrees, PhD’s in social and biomedical sciences, MD’s, and other doctoral-level degrees. Successful candidates will receive monthly stipends to support their studies, and can use the funds as they see fit for career development. Doctoral Candidates will receive 28K per year. The scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis as long as the grant support allows. The successful candidates must demonstrate satisfactory progress toward degree completion during the course of their awards.Application packets should include the following information:
A CV for the candidate
A letter from the candidate that indicates their career interests and goals
Two letters of recommendation
The most recent set of transcripts
Proof of tribal enrollment
Proof of enrollment in a graduate level health sciences (or related) degree program
Please send all information in one packet to Tom Becker at the Board, either by pdf or surface mail.
