Girls on Ice Canada: Applications Open for 2023 Expeditions

Inspiring Girls Expeditions empowers young women to lead and succeed through science, art, and outdoor exploration. For this program, applicants must be 16 to 18 years old

Girls on Ice Canada is organized by Inspiring Girls, a group that leads tuition-free multi-day expeditions that interweave science, art, and backcountry travel.

The expeditions are led by professional women scientists, artists, and wilderness guides. Throughout each expedition, the team engages in scientific and artistic inquiry about the environment around them. In small groups, participants design and conduct scientific projects, which they present to the public on the last full day of their expeditions.

In a call-out for applications, Inspiring Girls said, “Are you interested in joining an expedition team next summer? We don’t require any specific skill sets, just a willingness to learn, explore, and challenge yourself in a new environment.”

For Girls on Ice, applicants must be 16 to 18 years old on June 1, and currently enrolled in high school, including graduating in the spring before expeditions start. “We welcome cisgender girls and transgender, agender, Two Spirit, nonbinary, intersex, and genderqueer youth to our programs.” To apply visit here.
