Call for Applications: Polar STEAM – Antarctic Artists & Writers Application

Polar STEAM is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project that supports collaborations between educators, artists, and writers with polar researchers. There are two possibilities for Artists & Writers’ field time in Antarctica: (1) to be embedded with a science team, or (2) to conduct their work independently in Antarctica. Depending on the nature of the artist or writer’s proposed work, there are advantages to either scenario. In the first scenario, being embedded with a science team would involve daily collaboration and work together during the field season, with collaboration time pre-and post- season as well. In the second scenario, the artist or writer would still be in the Antarctic environment and interact with some science teams and people living and working at Antarctic research stations.

Submission Deadline: August 31, 2023 at 11:59PM

Stipend: $2,000
