Created through a generous gift from Ms. Connie Downing, this scholarship is design to support undergraduate students planning to participate in the 2018 Greenland-Arctic Vikings Field School. This scholarship dramatically reduces tuition for four students attending this field school from its original $5,950 to $2,950 – creating four $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 IFR enrolment portal.
