Inspiring Girls Expeditions; Now Taking Applications! 

 Inspiring Girls Expeditions is a tuition-FREE, 12-day wilderness science education program for 16- and 17-year-old high school girls*. All interested students are encouraged to apply, even (especially) if they don't feel like they fit the "typical" image of a scientist or outdoors person. The students we most want to connect with often believe they are not qualified enough for our program, but we know from years of experience that the support of a trusted adult (like a mentor or teacher) can make all the difference in a student finding the confidence to apply. 

The aim of this program is to provide each participant with a unique opportunity to move beyond their comfort zone through field-based science research projects, wilderness exploration, and nature-based art. We do not consider a student's grades in our selection process; we just want to connect with participants ready to explore their own curiosity, creativity, and courage. In the summer of 2021 (COVID permitting), supportive, experienced, and knowledgeable guides and scientists will lead participants in mountaineering in Alaska and Washington, kayaking and packrafting in Alaska, or rock climbing in Colorado. Please note that travel outside the USA is not required to participate in this program.

The deadline to start the application is January 22, 2021, so encourage students you know to APPLY TODAY!
