Second Annual ARCUS Award for Arctic Research Excellence Competition

30 October 1997

Dear Colleague:

This is a reminder that 1 December 1997 is the deadline for submitting
papers to the competition for the Second Annual Award for Arctic
Research Excellence sponsored by the Arctic Research Consortium of the
United States (ARCUS). This year's student competition will be judged
in four broad categories: Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Social
Sciences, and Interdisciplinary; with up to four awards given. The
review panel consists of senior arctic researchers from various fields.

We encourage you to spread the word about the Second Annual ARCUS Award
competition to students who may be interested in this opportunity to
gain national recognition, to present their work to a broad-based
audience during the Arctic Forum at the ARCUS 10th Annual Meeting in
Washington, D.C., and to win the $500 dollar cash award. A complete
announcement and entry form can be found at
