Student/Participant Selection Criteria

The Schools on Board Field Program is aimed at high school students enrolled in Grade 10-12/13; S2-S4; or secondaire 4/5 who have a keen interest in science and the environment. The following criteria will be used to select participants.

Field Program

*Arctic research requires physical activity in a variety of environmental conditions. Successful candidates must complete a medical screening that may require a medical examination by their doctor.

**Note that the educational programming is delivered in English; therefore a working knowledge of English is required. French is a dominant language on the ship, as many of the researchers and ship crew are from Quebec. An appreciation and understanding of the French language is a benefit.

Students must apply through their schools. If your school has not already applied, see School Selection Criteria.

Interested students must then apply to their school and complete the Student Application Form which includes a letter of intent (Part II), in which they explain why they would like to participate in an Arctic Field program, and a student commitment and consent form (Part III).
