Application Deadline: Inspiring Girls Expeditions
When: 31 January 2017
Where: Online, deadline at 9:00 am AKST
Each year we select expedition teams of 8-9 teenage girls and 3 instructors to spend 12 days exploring and learning about glaciers and the alpine or marine environment. Through scientific field studies with professional glaciologists, ecologists, artists, and mountaineers, you will build critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, and make lasting friendships. One team explores Mount Baker, an ice-covered volcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. Another team sleeps under the midnight sun while exploring an Alaskan glacier. Our third team explores the connections between glacier and ocean by kayak in Resurrection Bay, near Seward, AK.
FOR ALL EXPEDITIONS, YOU MUST BE EITHER 16 OR 17 YEARS OLD ON JUNE 1, 2017.
To be fair to all girls, we do not make exceptions to the age limitations. We realize that there are very mature 15 year old girls who would do fine in the program or that by luck you might turn 18 just days before the deadline; however, we have decided it is only fair to be firm with the advertised age limits.
