Created through a generous gift from Ms. Connie Downing, this scholarship is design to support undergraduate students planning to participate in the 2019 Greenland-Arctic Vikings Field School. This scholarship dramatically reduces tuition for four students attending this field school from its original $5,700 to $2,700 – creating eight $3,000 awards. Selection of awardees will be based on and determined by a combination of academic achievement, letter of recommendation, and the strength of essays written as replies to application essay questions.
There is no separate application process for this scholarship. Only four students will be admitted to the field school and each will be awarded this scholarship. Students interested in participating in the Greenland-Arctic Vikings Field School must apply directly through the program’s application page.
Eight scholarships are available in the amount of $3,000 each. The scholarship is an automatic deduction from the original tuition of $5,700. Students winning this award will pay only $2,700 as tuition for the Greenland Arctic Vikings Field School. This scholarship has no cash value. This scholarship may not be applied to any other field school, within or outside the IFR.
