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 (2024) 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).
