We invite all AMP Scholars who have graduated with at least an Associate's Degree to register as an Alumnus.
Registering as an alumnus will help us keep up to date with the growing number of accomplishments of our ANAMP graduates!
To help encourage ANAMP scholars to attend graduate school, ANAMP will offer a financial incentive to help offset expenses associated with being accepted into a graduate program.
With an increase in Native American students pursuing and receiving their BS degree, there is more opportunity to transition them into graduate school at one of our partner institutions. Because we do not directly provide financial or other support to graduate students, our efforts are focused upon getting students accepted into graduate school and steering them towards other support programs, such as the McNair Scholars program, NSF graduate fellowships, and the Bridge to Doctorate programs offered at other Alliances, among several others.
ANAMP Scholars entering graduate school may be eligible for a one-time payment of $500.
To be eligible, the student must be;
- an existing ANAMP Scholar
- graduating from an ANAMP partner institution
- graduating from an approved NSF CIP program
- entering graduate school at an ANAMP partner institution
- starting an approved NSF CIP program
