Native American Cancer Prevention Summer 2022 Research Program Applications Due Feb. 1

The Partnership for Native American Cancer Prevention (NACP) is now accepting applications for summer 2022! 

NACP is a collaboration between Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona's Cancer Center and Wassaja Carlos Montezuma Center for Native American Health that is intended to facilitate the entry of Native Americans into biomedical research and healthcare professions while engaging communities in research and training relevant to their needs. The paid NACP summer internships for University of Arizona undergraduate students are offered in conjunction with the Undergraduate Biology Research Program (UBRP). Participants work 35 hours per week for 12 weeks in the summer.

During the program, students will learn more about health disparities among Native peoples, develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, explore career options, learn about professional development as a scientist, learn to work in a team and make presentations and become a part of a supportive peer network.

Summer 2022 program dates: May 17 - Aug. 22, 2022.

Apply today! The application deadline is Feb. 1, 2022.
