NOTE: Starting this year, UAF will establish competitively awarded scholarships for up to six selected RAP Ph.D. students. The support for each of the six awardees will include a one semester stipend for $7,500, tuition for that semester (up to 9 credits), and health insurance for the scholarship period. Support to teach classes for the RAP Graduate Certificate will be continued. However, we will not be able to cover costs for conference travel, or other cohort-based activities that have been supported in the past.
The target date is to make the first awards for Fall 2019. Please return to this site, or the Graduate school home page, for further information on the new scholarship processes, deadlines and other information.
Each graduate student in the RAP program participates in a set of core training activities that include classes, an internship experience, seminars, an annual retreat, and other special events.
This training program builds on and contributes to existing degree-granting graduate programs at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in ecology, biology and wildlife, natural resources management, economics, political science, geology, geophysics, engineering, anthropology, and other disciplines.
Our students work with many of UAF’s active research centers and programs such as the International Arctic Research Center, the Institute of Arctic Biology, the Center for Alaska Native Health Research, the Alaska Native Language Center, the Scenarios Network for Alaska Planning, Cold Regions Housing Research Center, and the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy.
