  • Amount $144,540
  • City Tucson, AZ
  • Investigator Maria Velez
  • Year 2010
  • Program Higher Education
  • Sub-program Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in STEM Higher Education

The University of Arizona was the first campus to participate in the Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership and it remains the flagship of the program. Funds from this grant will support the University's efforts to recruit qualified indigenous students to its program, and to provide the resources and institutional support necessary to meet the needs of students from indigenous or tribal backgrounds. Providing such support is a crucial component of enabling indigenous students to successfully complete graduate work, and the University of Arizona anticipates that through its efforts, degree completion among supported students will exceed 90%, an estimate consistent with its record thus far
