Polaris 2017 team chosen

The Polaris Project is thrilled to announce that the 2017 group has been chosen. Our 18-person team includes 11 students (9 undergraduate and 2 graduate) who were selected from a remarkably strong set of applicants. The students come from across the US and its territories, from Alaska to Puerto Rico, and from a great diversity of backgrounds. Our group will first assemble April 21-23 in Woods Hole for safety training and orientation, and then our expedition to the Yukon River Delta in Alaska will launch in late June. A complete list of the 2017 Polaris Project participants can be found here.
