There is a great need for tribal members trained in law enforcement, said many tribal leaders. New Mexico Military Institute will be awarding full scholarships to 20 Native American students who are interested in pursuing an associate's degree in criminal justice. Applications are due around around August 5th, 2010.
The recipient lands a summer internship at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia. NMMI also offers a separate scholarship for Native American students, worth $2,500 per semester regardless of area of study.
