The Tribal Nations Research Group is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $178,311 from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award is for a planning project. The project will result in a proposal for a study that will determine whether an outreach project that has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP) has impacted math learning among Native Americans.  

The objectives are to 1) define what constitutes success of the outreach project; 2) identify short-term and long-term outcome; 3) identify rubrics to measure outcomes; 4) identify an approach methodology; 5) identify instruments to measure the outcomes; 6) identify data sources and methods to gather data; 7) identify ways to measure the impact of the Native American cultural component.  Additionally the proposed planning project will explore ways to explain the role the NSF Tribal College Rural Systemic Initiative (1994-2005) had in establishing the necessary and preliminary environmental and academic atmosphere for the Sunday Academy project at the participating tribal colleges and the American Indian communities being served.
