Openings- ADAC has several immediate openings in its Fellows program for undergraduate and graduate students! We are in need of students who could conduct Arctic-related STEM research and production/hands-on projects that would potentially benefit the U.S. Coast Guard operator in the Arctic to better respond to Search and Rescue, Disaster Relief, and Humanitarian Assistance missions. More information on ADAC and its current projects can be found at our website:www.adac.uaa.alaska.edu
Through Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding, ADAC has immediate positions available for graduate students, including tuition remission, graduate health insurance, and $1,800 monthly stipend through June 30, 2017. Undergraduate stipends are also available at $1,000 monthly through June 30th, with 50% tuition remission.
