Karthaus summerschool


How to apply


The course is meant for early stage Ph.D. students that work on a glaciology-related climate project. Some places are available for junior scientists. The course can accomodate 36 students. Prior detailed knowledge/background in glaciology is not a prerequisite but preference will be given to students with stronger math/numerical background.


The registration fee (2023) is €900. This covers lodging, full board, excursion and course material. Travel to and from Karthaus is not covered. The International Glaciological Society offers three fellowships to cover the registration for students that qualify but have difficulties to pay the fee (this requires a justification, and preference will be given to students outside of high income economies).


Applications for the 2023 course are not accepted anymore.

Covid-19 implications

Students should be aware that travel restrictions/quarantine requirements may be in effect, and any additional costs relating to this will not be covered by the Karthaus course! In addition, students should also be aware that it is possible that the course needs to be cancelled last minute. In that case the Karthaus course will not be liable for costs already made by the students.
