In its 12th year, this innovative conference provides a venue for off-the-record engagement among policymakers/practitioners, scientists/analysts, business representatives, Indigenous Peoples, and other stakeholders regarding Arctic issues of mutual interest to leading North Pacific Arctic States (Canada, Russia and the United States) and non-Arctic States (China, Japan and South Korea). NPAC aims to provide early identification of key policy issues and improved understanding of major options for addressing these issues. NPAC 2022 is being held as global warming, especially in the Arctic, is increasing and complex geopolitical challenges face the region and the world.

There are 4-5 Early Career NPAC Fellowships (supported by funds from the U.S. National Science Foundation) for NPAC 2022.

Eligibility: Early career researchers or professionals (five years or less post Ph.D. or terminal degree), or advanced graduate students with professional research experience that is relevant to the Arctic, of any nationality.

Important Dates:
Applications due: September 19, 2022
Announcement of NPAC fellows: October 5, 2022
