Our year-long Research Academy will introduce high school students to relatable public health topics and will conclude with a youth-driven community health project. The program includes an in-person kick-off week (in Portland, OR) and virtual learning sessions with role model guest speakers.
The program is designed for American Indian/Alaska Native youth (preferably juniors and seniors in high school). High schools, Tribal health and wellness programs, Indian Health Boards, or other programs serving AI/AN youth can serve as host sites. Site mentors are encouraged to recruit 2-4 local students who will work together on their community health project.
Students will receive $2,000 to cover their learning and research-related expenses participating in the Academy. Students will be paid $1,000 after the week-long orientation, and $1,000 after presenting their community health research project (April/May).
NW NARCH will cover the costs of travel to Portland, OR for the Kick-off Orientation.
