Native American Natural Resource Program

The Native American Natural Resource Program (NANRP) provides Native students with the services and resources they need for a successful academic experience here at the University of Montana.

The mission of the NANRP is to provide Native American students enrolled in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation with educational opportunities and support that will assist and guide them as they earn their undergraduate degree.

Some of the services the NANRP offers Native American students enrolled in the college:

  • Tutoring
  • Mentoring
  • academic and financial aid advising (including transfer advising)
  • internship and seasonal job placement
  • And scholarship searches

The W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation acknowledges that we are in the aboriginal territories of the Salish land and Kalispel people. We honor and appreciate that.

The University of Montana values leadership, engagement, diversity, and sustainability, because our institution is committed to respect, welcome, encourage, and celebrate the differences among us. Read more about UM's Diversity Advisory Council
