International Summer School in Glaciology


The University of Alaska (UAF) has organized bi-annual summer schools in glaciology since 2010 open to graduate students in glaciology around the world. The course is held at the Wrangell Mountains Center in McCarthy, Alaska.
The course scheduled for 6-16 June, 2020 had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We intend to hold the next course 8-18 June 2021, if possible. All students accepted for the 2020 course will roll over to the 2021 course. We do not expect an open call for further applications. Whether or not the course will be held may will likely be announced in March (Update 14 January 2021)
