An information session will be held on Monday, 6 December 2021 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. EST. Registration is required.

CARPE’s goal is to enhance graduate education by using convergence research and decolonizing scientific approaches to tackle the complex socio-ecological problems in light of changing seasonality in the Arctic. The CARPE program will enable students to bring their discipline-specific knowledge to interdisciplinary teams in order to identify and address grand challenges posed by a changing climate. Courses will develop a foundational knowledge about the changing Arctic, provide skills in collecting and analyzing environmental and sociological field data in cold regions, and introduce students to decolonizing approaches to science and reciprocity in conducting research on Indigenous Arctic lands. Additional training includes a trip to Mt. Washington (on a Snowcat in winter), a summer retreat to the Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island,and a workshop in Alaska to learn about engaging Arctic communities. Second year students intending to pursue PhDs will be eligible to apply for CARPE fellowships to support tuition and stipend. This is an opportunity for students seeking to expand their experience in team research through deep integration across disciplines driven by specific and compelling societal concerns.

CARPE is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF NRT #2125868). CARPE applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning 1 February 2022. Students should first apply to the University of New Hampshire Graduate School by 15 January 2022.

CARPE-NRT stipends and support for customary costs of education (tuition and required fees) are limited to U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents. However, international students can participate as non-stipend-supported NRT trainees or as non-trainees.
