Travel Opportunity and Scholarship

Hey CSIHS students. Check out this awesome trip to the Arctic that the organization Students On Ice provides. They have just posted that they will be offering full scholarships for the trip (worth almost $10,000), so all of you adventurers should apply. When I was a senior at CSIHSIS I spent a few days applying and getting some recommendation letters from teachers and just with that effort I was able to travel to the Antarctic in the winter of 2009. The trip was not only fun I got the chance to meet students from around the world and make my resume look polished.
Heres the info:

Dreaming of polar bears, rocky shores, whales, fiords, mountains and glaciers?

Passionate about environmental issues and polar science?

Driven to affect positive and meaningful change in your community?

We have an incredible opportunity for you!

Students on Ice is proud to offer several fully funded scholarships for our upcoming Arctic Youth Expedition from July 27-August 7, 2011.

This expedition represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for youth to expand their knowledge about the circumpolar world, and to gain a global perspective of the Arctic, its wonders, and its present and future challenges.

Please see below for specific information about each scholarship, including: criteria; application forms; and deadlines to apply. If you do not meet the criteria for the following scholarships, please contact our Participant Coordinator, Niki Trudeau, to learn more about other scholarships, bursaries, grants and the SOI Fundraising Toolkit. More scholarship opportunities will be uploaded to this page over the coming weeks. Please check back frequently!

We are very grateful for our various partnerships and the generous supporters of SOI. Without them, we would not be able to offer you these scholarships! However, scholarships are not the only way to participate on our expeditions. We encourage all students to continue to raise their expedition fees through fundraising and community support.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All students must have a passport to travel on this expedition. Scholarship applicants should begin the passport application process NOW! If you are unsure of how to apply for a passport, check out this link.
