Morris is a Native American Serving Institution (18% of Morris’s students are Native American) that is widely recognized as a top-tier public liberal arts college. The Morris campus was originally established as an Indian Boarding School in 1887.  When the federal government deeded the campus to the University of Minnesota a stipulation was that Native American students attend the college tuition-free. Morris is strongly committed to encouraging Native American students in STEM .

Rolling admissions for 2015 began April 1.

This program is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundations Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program (NSF / DUE-1432383).
