professionals and applied researchers from the United States, Canada,

seminar meetings and a Fulbright exchange experience.

questions relevant to Arctic nations’ shared challenges.

participate in the program as Fulbright Arctic Initiative Scholars through
an open, merit-based competition. At least four of the scholars will be
selected from the United States and at least one scholar will be selected
from each of the other Arctic Council member states. Co-Lead Scholars Dr.
Michael Sfraga(http://www.cies.org/mike-sfraga) and Dr. Ross A. Virginia(

mentoring program participants and facilitating discussion and
collaboration among the Arctic Initiative Scholars. Program activities will

across the Arctic region to engage in collaborative thinking, analysis,

energy; water; health; infrastructure.
