The Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth collaborates with the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH) to bring together students from the U.S. and Chile in the pursuit of Antarctic research. The JASE program helps build relationships between future generations of scientists from both countries while developing the participants' awareness of global scientific issues. U.S. students must have fluency in the Spanish language because all interaction is in Spanish.


Program Information

From 2015-2018, Dartmouth supported U.S. student participation in the annual JASE expeditions in conjunction with the Chilean Antarctic Institute's Expedición Antártica Escolar (EAE), a program that has been running for over 10 years to promote awareness and appreciation of Antarctica in young Chileans. Students traveled to King George Island, Antarctica, where they participated in a number of activities including tours of international science facilities, studies of animal behavior at Elefanteras beach and on the Ardley Peninsula, vegetation surveys at the margin of Collins Glacier, and a visit to Bellinghausen Dome for glaciological studies. In 2020, the program ran in remote format with U.S. students participating in the Chilean Antarctic Institute's Feria Antártica Escolar (FAE, Antarctic School Fair).

Future opportunities for JASE will be posted on this website. Please check back for updates.
