Arctic Resilient Communities Youth Fellowship (ARC-YF) is now seeking applicants for their fellowship. They are looking for young community leaders between the ages of 18-23 from northern Alaska, northern Canada, and Greenland to apply.
Seven fellows will be selected from each of the three regions to participate in the nine-month fellowship. The 2022-2023 cohort will focus on having a direct role in building resilient Arctic communities. Through a series of online workshops, fellows will engage in inter-regional community-based research where they will navigate the intersection of Western science and Indigenous knowledge to address the impacts of change in Arctic communities.
Research areas include:
- Climate change
- Green energy technology
- Resource management
- Sustainable economic and infrastructure development
- Indigenous knowledge, cultural practices, and rights
- Arctic governance
- Local-scale planning
The 2022-2023 cohort will visit different Arctic communities in Greenland, Alaska, and Canada for hands-on learning experiences. Fellows will also develop and implement individual community-based projects that will aid in the longevity and resiliency of Arctic communities.
Deadline to apply is October 5th, 2022, at 8pm EST.
