Free Glaciology/Marine Summer Programs for Girls, Ages 16-17

Girls 16-17 years old are invited to apply by January 27 for free summer science/wilderness expeditions in Alaska and Washington state, sponsored by the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) of the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  Teams of 9 girls each will spend 12 days exploring and learning about glaciers and marine science. While some trips are limited to girls living on the West Coast, two of the trips are open to girls anywhere:  Girls on Ice — Cascades and Girls on Ice — Fjords.  More trips are planned, pending funding by sponsors. Because the openings are limited, IARC recommends these alternative opportunities offered by other organizations.
