Dartmouth awarded NSF grant for new polar sciences, engineering grad program
Date:8/6/2008

a unique position to put the IGERT grant to good use. "We at the Dickey Center are very proud of this achievement and of Ross Virginia and the Institute of Arctic Studies," said Yalowitz. "Dickey's primary purpose is to promote international understanding and involvement in major international issues of the day across the Dartmouth community. The focus of the IGERT grant on climate change and human policy implications involves many different faculty and disciplines at Dartmouth and we are delighted that under Dickey's aegis, this will go forward."

Albert, a CRREL senior research engineer, added, "We at CRREL are ecstatic about our success in the IGERT partnership with Dartmouth; this will open new doors for increased graduate student involvement in climate change research that is important for our nation and the world."

The IGERT program will train doctoral students to have an interdisciplinary view of polar systems and to understand the social and ethical implications of their research. The program will draw from the pool of applicants to Dartmouth's doctoral programs in the sciences and engineering and those selected for the program will receive a stipend in the form of an IGERT Fellowship as well as be involved in new interdisciplinary training on climate change and the cold regions, and international research opportunities in Greenland and other polar locations, including Antarctica.

In addition to the curricular requirements for their science graduate work, students in the new program will have a core curriculum including the courses, "Introduction to Polar Systems" and "Sustainability Science, Policy and Ethics." They will be trained to frame research questions in ways relevant to Arctic residents and policy by using tools and perspectives from both western science and traditional ecological knowledge. They will also attend a field seminar in Greenland in terrestrial ecosystem or cryosphere dynamics, followed by instruction from Gr
