TRC Summer Institute at Johns Hopkins

The TRC Summer Institute at Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health is a collaboration between all three TRC university partners. The TRC Summer Institute builds on existing Summer Institutes run by TRC JHU colleagues at the Center for American Indian Health. TRC Summer Institutes include week-long, in-person, 2-credit, graduate level courses. Courses address research and health topics relevant to tribal communities. The TRC Summer Institutes are part of the TRC’s training mission to increase the number of tribal community members prepared to partner with or carry out research that can serve their communities and to increase in the number of researchers who are prepared to carry out research that is both culturally- and scientifically-grounded. Travel and tuition scholarship are awarded on a competitive basis each summer. TRC-supported courses include Early Childhood Research with Tribal Communities, which was developed by TRC faculty and is delivered in odd years, and Qualitative and Quantitative Research Methods and Introduction to Data Management Using American Indian Health, which are offered during even years. In addition to completing graduate coursework, TRC Summer Institute Scholars participate in networking opportunities, work with TRC Summer Institute faculty mentors, and learn about graduate degree programs. To date, TRC Summer Institute travel and tuition scholarships have provided support to over 20 students, some of whom have gone on to enroll in graduate certificate or degree programs.
