The INPSYDE Program Summer Institute is a two week enrichment program for Native American Junior and Senior High School Students, who are interested in pursuing a degree in psychology related disciplines.
The Summer Institute is designed to help students develop strong academic foundations in psychology and science which are vital to success in college behavioral science and psychology courses.
The Summer Institute courses emphasize areas in psychology such as history, assessment, psychotherapy, cross-cultural psychology, research design, and statistics.
Students are required to live in a dormitory under the supervision of counselors on the campus of the University of North Dakota. This provides an opportunity for Summer Institute participants to experience campus life firsthand. Students are expected to abide by a code of conduct and live in a structured environment. These include ABSOLUTELY no alcohol and/or drugs, as well as inappropriate behaviors.
Interested applicants must complete the INPSYDE Program application and be accepted to participate. Applications must include two letters of recommendation, letter of interest, career statement, and letter of tribal affiliation and degree of Indian heritage.
It is very important that all information is completed on the form. Incomplete applications are not considered, unless prior arrangements are made.
