The American Indian College Fund believes it is critical to support tribal college faculty in conducting research that benefits Native communities, and disseminating research to both Native communities and the wider research community. The College Fund has produced two research journals:. The Mellon Tribal College Research Journal and the Tribal College and University Research Journal.
Mellon Tribal College Research Journal
In 2013 and 2015, respectively, the College Fund published two volumes of research by current and former Tribal College and University (TCU) faculty who were recipients of Mellon Foundation fellowships through the College Fund.
Tribal College and University Research Journal
The College Fund initiated a new journal, The Tribal College and University Research Journal in 2016 designed to provide current TCU faculty conducting research an avenue to publish research. The journal publishes articles in a variety of fields including science, program development, and student success, among others.
