Indigenous Communities Fellowship

The Indigenous Communities Fellowship is Stanford's premier opportunity for Native undergraduates and graduate students to pursue Indigenous service and community reinvestment. A Cardinal Quarter opportunity co-sponsored by the Native American Cultural Center and the Haas Center for Public Service, the fellowship enables students to participate in an internship working with a nonprofit, government, or tribal organization on social, political, and/or economic issues impacting American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and Indigenous Pacific Islander communities in the U.S. Through this fellowship, students engage with communities by applying their experience, academic pursuits, and leadership skills to address issues of social change, equity, and inclusion centered in the Indigenous experience. Indigenous Communities Fellows spend the summer quarter working full-time with a supervisor/mentor in a community organization of their choice.
