Sometimes the most interesting stuff comes through my email.

NSF Antarctic Artists & Writers Program

The Antarctic Artists & Writers Program provides opportunities for scholars in the humanities (painting, photography, writing, history, and other liberal arts) to work in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. These visitors will be able to make observations at U.S. Antarctic Program stations and research camps and in wilderness areas. The purpose is to enable serious writings and the arts that increase understanding of the Antarctic and help document America’s Antarctic heritage.

The National Science Foundation funds and manages the U.S. Antarctic Program, which is devoted mainly to scientific research and education in support of the National interest in the Antarctic. The programís research and support infrastructure enables access to much of the Antarctic region.

The deadline for receipt of applications at the National Science Foundation is 4 June 2003. This deadline is for work in the Antarctic during the 2004-2005 austral summer. Applications will not be accepted before 1 May 2003.
