The American Indian Graduate Center has announced the creation of the Miller Indigenous Economic Development Fellowship, a $190K program dedicated to Native research that was created with the support of Alumnus Robert J. Miller (Eastern Shawnee Tribe). The American Indian Graduate Center is one of the largest scholarship providers to Native Americans in the U.S.
The fellowship is meant to empower Native doctoral students who are currently conducting research in the data collection or analysis phase, whose work centers on economics and economic development impacting Native communities. The program is meant to amplify Native voices and create opportunities for data equity in research, said Dr. Corey Still (United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians), American Indian Graduate Center’s Director of Student Programming and Research, in an emailed statement.
Those interested in the Miller Indigenous Economic Development Fellowship can go to www.AIGCS.org to learn more and apply.

12 years of Native News
This month, we celebrate our 12th year of delivering Native News to readers throughout Indian Country and beyond. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.
Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and to tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
