Nineteen students, all rising seventh and eighth graders from Montana’s Blackfeet Reservation as well as the Navajo Nation, spent two weeks immersing themselves in University life on campus this summer. The students made up the first cohort of the Montana American Indian Math and Science Program (MT-AIMS), a donor-funded program designed to promote Native American student retention and academic achievement in math and science.
