|Projects: Mentoring Program|
Please check back with us in 2014 on new upcoming program opportunities.
Training opportunities are essential for Inuit who may wish to choose archaeology as a profession. The IHT wishes to encourage individuals to enter into archaeology as an academic field of inquiry in order that Inuit become more involved in this field. There are currently very few training opportunities for Inuit students to study archaeology. The Mentoring Program aims to link interested Inuit with suitable archaeology projects.
The Mentoring Program can support salaries for up to four students. Archaeologists are expected to cover the students' food costs while in camp, training, and an evaluation of the students' performance. In addition to other academic requirements imposed by the students' schools (if they are to receive High School credit), students are expected to submit a short report of their experience to the Inuit Heritage Trust.
