Message from John Parker, Program Director at NSF:
“The National Science Foundation has recently announced the Navigating the New Arctic funding program. The goal of the program is to fund scholars from all fields to research and understand the profound social, environmental, and engineering challenges and opportunities related to the creation of an open and ice-free arctic.
Sociologists are particularly well suited to think about these issues, and it would be fantastic to have some sociologically oriented investigations into one of the most profound socio-environmental changes in human history.
The solicitation includes email addresses for cognizant program officers in case you would like to ask about the suitability of your research for this solicitation.”
