About the Fellowship
Through the National Science Foundation-funded Joint Science Education Project (JSEP), Dartmouth graduate students have an opportunity to teach and mentor multicultural groups of high school students during the JSEP field course in Greenland. A selected interdisciplinary cohort of 4-6 students will participate in a year-long fellowship that includes communication and outreach training on campus and participating in the field-based JSEP program in Greenland during summer 2021. The program will run in remote format if travel restrictions remain in place.
After participating in the field course, the fellowship requires that each graduate fellow produce an outreach product related to polar environments. Successful examples include lesson plans for use in local classrooms, online videos, social media engagement, and visits to local venues for science outreach presentations. A second year of funding may be available for students to further develop outreach products for use in classrooms (e.g., lesson plans, videos, books).
JSEP is supported by the National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs in cooperation with the Government of Greenland. High school students from the U.S., Greenland, and Denmark participate in the field-based polar science JSEP program.
