The Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI) Undergraduate Summer Internship provides an opportunity for talented undergraduates to conduct research, explore career opportunities in archives and special collections, and learn about advanced training in Native American and Indigenous Studies and related fields. This eight-week paid internship program at the American Philosophical Society Library in Philadelphia prepares students for graduate school or a career in education or libraries through mentoring, networking, and hands-on research experience.

Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI) Fellowships

The American Philosophical Society invites applications for predoctoral, postdoctoral, and short-term research fellowships from scholars at all stages of their careers, especially Native American scholars in training, tribal college and university faculty members, and other scholars working closely with Native communities on projects in Native American and Indigenous Studies and related fields and disciplines. These funding opportunities are supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Native American Scholars Initiative (NASI). Fellows will be associated with the APS’s Center for Native American and Indigenous Research (CNAIR), which promotes greater collaboration among scholars, archives, and indigenous communities.
