About the NCIA/MATC Sovereign Native Youth STEM Leadership Academy

The NCIA/MATC Sovereign Native Youth STEM Leadership Academy is a six-day summer academy that provides Native American students with the leadership skills to positively impact their tribal communities and shape their futures. The academy, held on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, offers a broad range of interactive, hands-on activities that expose students to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and transportation-related opportunities after high school while gaining a greater appreciation for Native American history and culture. The academy is an extension of the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affair’s Sovereign Native Youth Leadership Program and the Mid-America Transportation Center’s STEM after-school program Roads, Rails, and Race Cars.
