Arctic REU Greenland began as a series of undergraduate research trips at Concord University during alternate years from 2013-2019. These earlier expeditions were funded by an undergraduate research grant from the American Chemical Society, with a goal towards developing a larger-scale undergraduate research program. The 2021 cohort is funded by the National Science Foundation and will mark the first of these larger-scale expeditions. The NSF cohorts will operate in 2021 and 2022, and include eight students each year from institutions across the USA.
