The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) is a National Science Foundation
supported science and cultural-exchange summer program for high-school students.
The three-week program takes place entirely in Greenland. Participants from the
United States, Denmark, and Greenland live and work together while exploring
current research and completing their own inquiry-based investigations. The
program includes two weeks of extensive field experiences based out of the town
of Kangerlussuaq and a final week with a visit to Summit Station, the U.S.
research facility located at the top of the Greenland ice sheet. Students
observe scientists as they conduct research in a wide variety of fields
including biology, geology, climatology, chemistry, and engineering. Students
also have significant hands-on experiences in field research under the guidance
of professional teachers from the participating nations.

JSEP is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents in the 11th grade at the
time of application submittal. Applications from underserved students are
encouraged. NSF’s Division of Polar Programs covers all participant costs, such
as food, transportation, lodging, and instruction for students selected to
participate. For more information, including application materials, go to
http://www.arcus.org/jsep.

Applications for the JSEP 2015 program will open on November 15, 2014 and close
January 9, 2015.
