Do you know of any youth who would be perfect for our 20th Anniversary Arctic Expedition?
Who are we looking for?

The youth who are drawn to Students on Ice (SOI) expeditions already show the makings of leaders, innovators, creators and change-makers in their home, schools, communities and countries. Students on SOI’s expeditions are also very diverse, which includes students from all over the world and a strong cohort of Indigenous youth and staff (more than 40% of participants) from across the circumpolar Arctic.

About the Journey

SOI's 2020 Arctic Expedition will take over 120 youth on an inspiring two-week journey taking place July 5-20. The team will engage in ship and land-based workshops along the entire eastern coastline of Newfoundland & Labrador, communities and coasts of Nunatsiavut, Torngat Mountains National Park, and southern Baffin Island, ending in Iqaluit, Nunavut. 
Guided by a team of scientists, elders, artists and explorers, youth will develop a deeper connection to the land, culture and people of the Arctic. They will engage in hands-on research, learn from Inuit elders, visit Arctic communities, observe wildlife, and explore opportunities for cross-cultural collaboration with youth from around the world. Youth will learn about the impacts of climate change, the health of our oceans and ecosystems, and other important topics, grounded in an understanding and appreciation for the people who call the Arctic home.

Full scholarships available!

With support from SOI's global partner network, a majority (more than 80%) of participants on SOI's Arctic Expeditions are fully funded to participate. 


$1M in bursaries to attend Shad

I know resources are limited and not all families, school districts and geographic areas have access to the same richness of Canada’s resources. 
Last year, Shad provided over $1-million in bursaries so the most deserving students could attend, regardless of their family’s income. 
Secondary school teacher, Kingsley Hurlington explains the importance of having diversity in the program. 
Shad Bursaries
And Shad's CEO says it perfectly:
“The capacity to love STEAM is not tied to gender, economic status, or ethnicity. Thanks to the generosity of Shad's donors, we can remove financial barriers so future Shads can focus on their curiosity, the love of learning and reaching their full potential.”

If you have a student that would benefit from our program we’d love to:

P.S. Our online application for Shad2020 is now open!

I am with the National Indigenous Youth Entrepreneurship Camp, NIYEC for short. We are hosted by the First Nations University of Canada. Our focus is to invite Indigenous youth from across Canada participate in a completely free of cost entrepreneurship camp (travel assistance maybe be provided if qualified). I have included a brochure, poster and a copy of the registration form.  Registration forms can be sent in via or online. For more information about the camp & for online applications please visit our website: If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I am the Communications Coordinator for the City of Whitehorse and we are hoping your students would like to participate in an essay contest. The theme of the contest is “Write an essay about what your ideal city would look like.” The essay doesn’t need to be more than 500 words. Students have a chance to win a $100 gift card to the Canada Games Centre (there can be 3 winners). The winning essays will also be displayed on the City’s website. The deadline for submissions is December 31.
Thank you,
