Empowered Alaska Native scholars: Leading the way to thriving ecosystems through ancestral knowledge and stewardship.
$5000 Per Semester Scholarship Award
The prestigious award level supports the hard work of Scholars who direct their individual talents and passions to make impact in the dynamic and fast-changing field of marine conservation in the Arctic.
Scholars are expected to pursue experience above and beyond their degree program, like internships, research projects, presentations or conferences, and more. Scholars are eligible for additional resources to support these requirements.
Mentorships and Networking
The Program offers Scholars the unique opportunity to consult with professionals with a combined century of experience working with marine issues in Alaska’s Arctic, in both traditional lifeways and modern science.
