Northern Science Training Program (NSTP) News.
Each year AINA accepts, ranks, and forwards student applications from the University of Calgary to the NSTP, a funding source administered by Polar Knowledge Canada. This year we have forwarded nine applications for funds to offset the costs of northern travel. The students come from a range of disciplines: four from physical geography, three from veterinary medicine, and one each from anthropology and biological science. Proposed fieldwork will take place at various locations in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Northern British Colombia. We are pleased with the northern research being conducted at the University of Calgary and look forward to hearing from the students about their fieldwork in the coming year. To learn about the projects funded by the NSTP in the last field season, please view the short presentations given by five successful applicants as part the Arctic Institute of North America Speaker Series at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ae3442WtVm I.
