MSI
SUMMER INTERNSHIP

BRINGING ARCTIC RESEARCH TO MINORITY SERVING INSTITUTIONS

ADAC Fellows Program’s MSI component is a summer internship program, whereby ADAC recruits junior and senior undergraduate students from partnering MSI and beyond to participate in a 10-week, hands-on research project within one of ADAC’s projects or work on a tailored assignment supporting ADAC’s mission. In an effort to extend the impact of the ADAC scientific and educational work more broadly across the country, the MSI summer internship program recruitment targets student participation from outside the University of Alaska System. ADAC conducted its initial summer internship program in the summer of 2017.

In the summer of 2018, ADAC is pleased to host the inaugural Arctic Summer Internship Program (ASIP) led by Drs. Craig Tweedie (University of Texas at Al Paso) and Andy Mahoney (University of Alaska Fairbanks). The 2018 ASIP includes a two-week fieldwork component in Utqiagvik(formerly known as Barrow) that will offer participating students opportunity to experience working, conducting research, and living in the High North by the Arctic Ocean. Limited travel and living expense support are available for enrolled students taking part in the ASIP internship.
