This program, administered by the Center for Global Change in partnership with the Cooperative Institute for Alaska Research (CIFAR), the Alaska Climate Science Center (Alaska CSC), and the UAF Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity (URSA), provides support to UAF students for research related to global change with a focus on arctic or subarctic boreal regions presented in an interdisciplinary context. Initiated at UAF in 1992, this competition is designed to give students experience with proposal writing and the peer review system as practiced by science funding agencies.
The deadline for the 2013 competition has passed. The 2013 guidelines are still available here and will give you a sense of what is involved, though the 2014 guidelines will not be identical. To be notified when the 2014 guidelines are posted (fall 2013), please send an e-mail with the words "2014 guidelines" in the subject line.
