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

eenlandic academic and policy experts in the human dimensions of Arctic change.

"Thanks to the IGERT award, Dartmouth and the Dickey Center's Institute for Arctic Studies will be able to strengthen its long-term commitment to polar studies and to faculty and student research, teaching, and the understanding of issues facing high latitude regions," said Dartmouth Provost Barry Scherr. "With the IGERT, Dartmouth, in partnership with CRREL, will create a curriculum that will train the next generation of scientists and engineers in such a way that they come to understand both the environmental change that is occurring in the polar regions as well as the societal effects of those developments."

IGERT is an NSF-wide program intended to meet the challenges of educating U.S. Ph.D. scientists and engineers with the interdisciplinary background, deep knowledge in a chosen discipline, and the technical, professional, and personal skills needed for the career demands of the future. The program is intended to catalyze a cultural change in graduate education by establishing innovative new models for graduate education and training in a fertile environment for collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
