David & Rachel Hopkins Fellowship opportunity

The Alaska Quaternary Center is offering this year's David and Rachel Hopkins Fellowship, designed to support UA graduate students who are conducting interdisciplinary research focusing on the Quaternary of Beringia. Previous awardees have examined alpine biogeography, regional chronologies of spruce tree growth, reconstruction of past temperatures using insect chitin, and populations of balsam poplar in the Arctic.

To be eligible for the fellowship, graduate students must:
• Be enrolled full-time and in good academic standing at UAF, UAA, or UAS
• Conduct interdisciplinary Quaternary research over historic or geologic time scales.
• Work on a project located in or relevant to Beringia or the North Pacific Rim
• Deliver a completed application (as a computer file) to the AQC by 5 pm, Monday, April 27
