scholarship for Juneau Icefield Research Program

We have just learned that, thanks to the Juneau Community Foundation, the Juneau Icefield Research Program (JIRP) will be able to offer a full scholarship to a UAS student this summer.

JIRP is an expeditionary learning experience for upper level high school and undergraduate students. During the 8-week expedition, students traverse the 75-mile distance across the Juneau Icefield participating in the long-running surveys of glacier dynamics and mass balance, state-of-the-art scientific research, academic lectures, and independent research projects. For more information you can visit our website

Students receive 6 upper division credits for the program (ENVS S496).

I'm attaching a flyer with further details.

Summer job in Denali

Employment Opportunity


Camp Denali and North Face Lodge in Denali National Park, Alaska are looking for skilled and experienced Naturalist Guides for the summer of 2017. 

Our naturalist guides are teachers of experiential learning, backcountry hiking guides, and competent drivers.  Guides are responsible for: leading lodge guests into the trail-less backcountry of Denali National Park; using creative teaching techniques to expand the guests’ knowledge of Alaskan ecosystems and to encourage land stewardship; and safely transporting people over the unpaved, mountainous park road.  The position is usually combined with positions in other departments depending on company needs.

Current WFR and CPR certifications and a solid academic background in the natural sciences are required (MS preferred).   Experience in arctic/sub-arctic or alpine regions is desired.  This is a rewarding and challenging position, set in an unparalleled location, among an interesting, committed, and conservation-minded community of staff.  For over 60 years, Camp Denali and North Face Lodge have been family-owned and -operated lodges with a reputation for excellence. We seek to offer the highest quality experience for visitors who venture out with our diverse and qualified staff of naturalists.  This is not your average job in Denali.

A three-season commitment is required.  Applications are due January 6, 2017.  For more information or to apply, please see the employment page at or contact
