Established researchers, early-career specialists, and indigenous knowledge experts from the Arctic Council countries will join together to form a network of scholars to conduct research in one of two focus areas: Resilient Communities and Sustainable Economies. Approximately twelve outstanding scholars will be selected through an open, merit-based competition to participate in an individual Fulbright exchange and convene with the other scholars for three in-person group seminars and on-going virtual communication to carry out team-based research.

The application deadline for international applicants is October 16, 2017, and the deadline for U.S. applicants is October 30, 2017. Scholars can apply online through the Fulbright Arctic Initiative website.
