North Carolina Native American Incentive Grant
Through the North Carolina Native American Grant, we encourage Native American students to apply for doctoral programs.
This grant aims to make graduate education more possible and affordable for Native American students.
You are eligible if:
- You are a Native American (someone who self-identifies as an American Indian and maintains cultural and political identification as such)
- You are an in-state resident of North Carolina for tuition purposes
- You are applying to a doctoral program
This award provides a stipend, tuition, and health insurance for one year.
|Length of support||One 9-month academic year|
Depending on funding, this award may change from year to year.
You cannot apply directly for the Native American Incentive Grant. Your program may nominate a limited number of applicants. We then select fellows from among nominees from across campus.
Please let your department know if you are interested in being nominated.
If you would like to be nominated, complete your admissions application by December 13, 2016.
If you are offered this award, you must give written acceptance to The Graduate School by April 15th.
