The goal is to gain a better understanding of the Arctic's physical,
biological, geological, chemical, social, and cultural processes; the
interactions of oceanic, terrestrial, atmospheric, biological, social,
cultural, and economic systems; and the connections that define the
Arctic. The Division of Arctic Sciences and other NSF programs support
projects that contribute to the development of the next generation of
researchers and scientific literacy for all ages through education,
outreach, and broadening participation in science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics. Program representatives from the Office of
Polar Programs (OPP) and other non-OPP NSF programs that support arctic
research coordinate across NSF, including joint review and funding of
arctic proposals and mutual support of special projects with high
logistical costs. This program provides educational opportunities for
undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and
K-12 educators.
