Global Change Student Research Grant Competition

CIFAR continues to be a major partner in the annual Global Change Student Research Grant Competition. This program, administered by the UAF Center for Global Change in partnership with CIFAR, the Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC), and the UAF Office of Undergraduate and Scholarly Activity (URSA), provides support to UAF undergraduate and graduate students for research on global change presented in an interdisciplinary context, with a focus on the arctic or subarctic boreal regions. The work may involve the environmental or social sciences or engineering. Initiated in 1992 at UAF, this competition is designed to give students experience with proposal writing and the peer review system as practiced by science funding agencies.
