    Posted by Olivia Benson on 11/20/2014 3:00:00 PM

    If you work with secondary teachers or students, this is a great opportunity for 11th Grade students to participate in a three week field school in Greenland.  All costs for participants are covered.


    Students Invited to Apply for the Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) http://www.arcus.org/jsep


    The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) is a National Science Foundation supported science and cultural-exchange summer program for high-school students.

    The three-week program takes place entirely in Greenland. Participants from the United States, Denmark, and Greenland live and work together while exploring current research and completing their own inquiry-based investigations. The program includes two weeks of extensive field experiences based out of the town of Kangerlussuaq and a final week with a visit to Summit Station, the U.S.

    research facility located at the top of the Greenland ice sheet. Students observe scientists as they conduct research in a wide variety of fields including biology, geology, climatology, chemistry, and engineering. Students also have significant hands-on experiences in field research under the guidance of professional teachers from the participating nations.


    JSEP is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the 11th grade at the time of application submittal. Applications from underserved students are encouraged. NSF's Division of Polar Programs covers all participant costs, such as food, transportation, lodging, and instruction for students selected to participate. For more information, including application materials, go to http://www.arcus.org/jsep.


    Applications for the JSEP 2015 program will open on November 15, 2014 and close January 9, 2015.
