Eleven minority tribal college students chosen at the end of March from the five partner tribal colleges will take part in a summer experience at MSU to help with their transition to the four-year institution. The experience will consist of three parts.
- One 3-credit MSU class (along with tutoring for the class) with tuition and books provided by the program.
- MSU research laboratory experience under the mentorship of their faculty mentor four hours per day.
- Study skills seminars which reinforce the study skills classes offered at the tribal college and introduce students to components of the university such as the library.
