One of ArcticNet's principal objectives is to contribute to the training of the next generation of young specialists needed to study, model, manage and ensure the stewardship of the changing Canadian Arctic. 

The $25K per year fund was created to help support the training of ArcticNet graduate students and northern students within national and international Field Schools, Courses or Institutes. 

The ArcticNet Training Fund covers 75% of the actual participation cost of the student up to a maximum of $5K per application. The remaining 25% must be covered by the applicant's supervisor/sponsor or with other funds available to the applicant for the training activity. We encourage students to apply for training opportunities hosted outside of Canada.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
