Applications are open for the 2024-2026 Arctic Fulbright Scholarship.

Join an Arctic Fulbright Scholarship workshop at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12 to learn about the benefits of becoming a Fulbright Scholar and how to apply.

Greg Poelzer, an alumnus of the inaugural 2015 Arctic Fulbright cohort and co-lead of the 2020-2023 Arctic Fulbright program, will give a presentation on his experiences both as a participant and a co-lead, and offer advice on submitting an application for the 2024-2026 cohort.

Building on the scholarship of three cohorts of the Fulbright Arctic Initiative, FAI IV will bring together a network of professionals, practitioners and researchers from the United States, Canada, the Kingdom of Denmark (including Greenland and the Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden.

Scholarship recipients will participate in monthly webinars, thematic group collaboration, three in-person meetings and an individual exchange experience. The program participants will address key research and policy questions related to promoting Arctic security through a diverse, multi-dimensional and cooperative interdisciplinary framework.

Academic researchers in the physical, natural, social, and health sciences, Indigenous and local knowledge holders, professionals in the fine arts and liberal arts as well as practitioners working in various disciplines are encouraged to apply.
