Girls on Ice ( is a unique, FREE, wilderness science education program for high school girls. Each year a team of 9 teenage girls and 3 instructors spend 11 days exploring and learning about mountain glaciers and alpine landscapes through scientific field studies with professional glaciologists and mountaineers.

This year we are offering 2 expeditions!

Girls on Ice NORTH CASCADES is the original expedition in Washington State.
Open to all girls age 15-18 (yes, international girls can apply!)
July 21 – August 1, 2013

Girls on Ice ALASKA is geared toward Alaskan and Pacific Northwest girls.
June 21 – July 2, 2013 (applications are due February 1, 2013)

***Girls on Ice is not a reward for past good grades or academic achievement, 

 it is an inspiration for future academic success and leadership.***

We are able to provide this program TUITION FREE to the girls through small grants, gifts from individuals, and generous support from the National Science Foundation, the Alaska Climate Science Center, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
