Application Requirements

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Arctic Indigenous Scholar! For the purposes of this opportunity, we define a scholar 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. Your education may have come from the land, the water, or a classroom. We strongly encourage applications from those that have not had many similar experiences, those seeking to build relationships, from hunters, culture bearers, and from those active in their community/region.

Candidates should be Indigenous persons at least 18 years of age, with US citizenship. Candidates must be available to travel for seven days during the time period of 11–22 May 2020, willing to work with ARCUS to complete travel arrangements documents, and willing to share about the experience had through this program with ARCUS and ICC-Alaska.

Please contact Lisa Sheffield Guy at lisa [at] arcus.org or 907-474-1600, with any questions.
