Nau mai, haere mai ki te JOIDES Resolution Academy!

Aotearoa New Zealand Māori and Australian First Nations undergraduate students and mentors are invited to apply to be a part of a transformative experience to grow your STEM skills, seize new opportunities, build networks, and contribute to international knowledge exchange.

GeoDiscoveryNZ and ANZIC, in collaboration with the International Ocean Discovery Program’s U.S. Science Support Program, invites indigenous students and mentors to set sail on an unparalleled adventure in STEM exploration!

Join us for the 2024 JR Academy aboard the JOIDES Resolution

This year, the JR Academy is dedicated to bridging the gaps between Western and Indigenous sciences, benefiting Māori and First Nations Peoples. Students will immerse themselves in a rich tapestry of Earth and ocean science activities, complemented by hands-on experiences in science communication and career development.

GeoDiscoveryNZ will cover all travel and participation fees for both accepted students and mentors. This includes medicals, visas, flights, meals, and accommodation throughout the program. Please note that insurance and primary researcher salaries are not covered and should be arranged through your host institute. Places are available for two students and a mentor.
