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 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

We work closely with the Office of American Indian Student Services and the Native American Studies Department to help our students as they transition to the University of Montana.
