The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) and the Inuit Circumpolar Council Alaska (http://iccalaska.org/) invite applications from and/or nominations of Arctic Indigenous scholars.

For the purposes of this opportunity, scholars are defined as an expert within their own knowledge system. This includes hunters, fishers, and gatherers; those that process and store food; health aides; and others. It includes youth, elders, and adults. Education may come from the land, the water, or a classroom.

The selected scholars will travel to Washington D.C. during spring 2019 and meet with officials at U.S. government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other groups. Four selected scholars will be able to share their interests via a seminar and meetings, learn of available resources, build toward collaborative relationships, and provide on-the-ground perspectives to key Arctic decision-makers.
