Background Information

The International Arctic Research Center (IARC) of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, America's Arctic University, is seeking undergraduates to work with renowned climate scientists on cutting edge Arctic research. IARC has received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for an REU* Center to host eight students each summer over a three year period beginning in the summer of 2017. The students will have the opportunity to work directly with the Principal Investigators, and be part of a peer cohort as they conduct this work.

NSF funded students will be paid a generous stipend for 2 months in the summer, and meals and housing will be provided at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Interested students should have a minimum level of math and science experience, be active undergraduates or have completed an associates degree. We welcome inquiries and applications from all US citizens or permanent residents and encourage applications from rural and Alaska Native students, military applicants, Hispanics and other under-represented groups.
