The ARG encourages applications from young researchers to enable their participation in Arctic expeditions supported by experienced members.
This model provides access for young people to both invaluable knowledge about safety and field research aspects as well as increasing the opportunity for successful outcomes and outputs from the expeditions. Younger members are essential to the future of field research in the Arctic.
There are no membership fees. ARG is a charity and Members all contribute in cash and in kind towards the costs of the expeditions as voluntary gifts and time. Typically an expedition cash contribution for an ARG member is around £500 – 700 for a two to three week expedition. New members pay double this for their first expedition as a contribution towards the asset costs of the ARG from which they benefit in the field.
