The Native American Program (NAP) provides student support services to Native students at Dartmouth.
The Native American Program collaborates with Dartmouth’s faculty and staff, as well as tribal communities, to assist Native students in their personal, social, intellectual and ethical development so they can become life-long learners and responsible leaders in our global society. We complete our work with high regard for the unique cultural experiences and perspectives of Native peoples.
|Come chat with us about the Native college student experience. Join Molly Springer, Director of the Native American Program and Dr. Stephanie Waterman, NAP Elder in Residence. Dr. Waterman, Onondaga, turtle clan, is a professor at the Warner School of Education at the University of Rochester. Waterman was the first Onondaga to earn a Ph.D. from Syracuse University.

The Native American Program at Dartmouth is excited to invite you to submit an application for participation in the Occom Scholars Program.

This program is designed to adequately prepare Native students for work in and out of the classroom, while simultaneously developing a cohort of friends and formulating meaningful connections with peers, communities, tribes, and you will learn how research can be ceremony.
