We have updated our Program Policies! These new policies outline a handful of changes for the program and build the foundation of our commitment to Inuit-led conservation advocacy. In our policies you can find detailed information on eligibility, how to apply, the award process, scholar requirements and maintaining eligibility, funding opportunities for the Caleb Scholars Community, and more. This is a great resource to read to better understand who we are. You can find the Program Policies under the Resources tab > Program Policies. Read More

Congrats to Caleb Scholar Katy Tomter! Katy graduated with a BA in Alaska Native Studies with a minor in Political Science. Katy says, “Now that I’m graduated, I will be spending more time on the land and learning from my elders while I can. I intend on taking a meaningful break from academia to learn directly from the world around me. When the time is right, I plan on completing my masters in education.” Aarigaa!
