Native American Annual Scholarship ProgramAnnual scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated leadership, academic achievement, and an interest in a science career. Preference is given to Native American students who are college-bound high school seniors attending a Colorado high school or undergraduates who attend a Colorado college or university. Awards are presented to recipients at an annual reception in the fall. Download the application, due annually on October 1.

Native American Science Career DayNative American scientists and health career professionals come together with Native American middle school students to discuss science careers. This day-long symposium offers an opportunity for youngsters to hear the inspirational stories of these professionals, expand their understanding of what it means to have a science career, and to explore the possibilities for achieving their own educational and career goals in science.
Indigenous Fellowship ProgramArtists, elders, curators, scholars, and other individuals from Indigenous communities are hosted so that they can study the Museum’s 60,000-piece anthropology collection. As visiting fellows, they work together with Department of Anthropology curators and staff members to conduct original research and gain a deeper understanding of the anthropology collections’ cultural and historical significance.
