What is a CNAIR fellowship?

The Center for Native American and Indigenous Research (CNAIR) supports undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty fellows. The Center’s fellowship program seeks to generate and support research that is responsive to and engaged with Native communities and organizations and NAI research. Fellows will present their work at the annual CNAIR research symposium, and join a community of scholars dedicated to research by and for Indigenous people. We welcome fellowship applications from all Northwestern majors and schools.
