The application process is offered annually, and eligible courses/programs demonstrate strong northern relevance in content and learning outcomes, and will function as ambassadors of UArctic values and practice: "Respect for multiple systems of knowledge, promoting multidisciplinary understanding, and balance across different regions of the North".

Approved courses and programs obtain an additional prestigious mark of value for their respective institutions, and are promoted to the UArctic network via various highlights on the UArctic website, logo in the Study Catalogue, and mentions in the news and on social media. Additionally, those institutions are granted the right to issue UArctic certificates to students who complete their endorsed program/course.

This is another chance for all members to raise their profile at home, as well as on the international Arctic platform.
