The field of Arctic studies, while currently enjoying an explosion in growth, nonetheless remains a relatively small field, with even the largest programs having just one or two designated faculty members. This makes it all the more critical that students have the opportunity to build critical networks of colleagues by traveling to institutes that bring together scholars and practitioners from around the world.

This summer, four IPI Arctic Fellows were accepted at international Arctic institutes that play a vital role in strengthening their research. Michael Brown, MA student in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies (JSIS); Brandon Ray, MA student in a joint program with JSIS and School of Marine and Environmental Affairs; and Max Showalter, PhD candidate in the School of Oceanography, were all accepted to Science and Diplomacy in the Arctic at Dartmouth College, June 26–30, 2017. And Jay-Kwon Park, MA student in JSIS, was one of only three students from the United States accepted into the Korean Arctic Academy at the Korea Maritime Institute in Busan, Korea.
