Call for Applications and Nominations: Empowering Arctic Indigenous Scholars and Making Connections
Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S.
Inuit Circumpolar Council Alaska

The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the Inuit Circumpolar Council Alaska invite applications from and/or nominations of Arctic Indigenous scholars.

For the purposes of this opportunity, scholars are defined as an expert within their own knowledge system. This includes hunters, fishers, and gatherers; those that process and store food; health aides; and others. It includes youth, elders, and adults. Education may come from the land, the water, or a classroom.

The selected scholars will travel to Washington D.C. during spring 2019 and meet with officials at U.S. government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other groups. Four selected scholars will be able to share their interests via a seminar and meetings, learn of available resources, build toward collaborative relationships, and provide on-the-ground perspectives to key Arctic decision-makers.

For more information, including how to apply or nominate a scholar, go to:

Nomination deadline: 28 December 2018, 5:00 p.m. Alaska Standard Time
Application deadline: 10 January 2019, 5:00 p.m. Alaska Standard Time
