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 juneauicefield.com.
Students receive 6 upper division credits for the program (ENVS S496).
I'm attaching a flyer with further details.
