PLEASE NOTE:  The application period for Scotland Model Arctic Council (SCOTMAC 2) is now closed, and selection decisions have now been made.  Thank you very much to the many students who applied for this innovative educational experience!

SCOTMAC 2 was considerably more than two times oversubscribed, and we regret that not all applicants could be offered a place.  However, the SCOTMAC Secretariat will maintain a waiting list in case selected applicants decline or are unable to attend.

SCOTMAC 2 will take place 10-12 March 2023 at Glasgow Caledonian University in Glasgow, Scotland.  It will involve three full days of model diplomacy and expert teaching, plus morning and afternoon refreshments, three lunches, a welcome dinner and a finale dinner.

Places on SCOTMAC 2 are limited to 32 students.  Up to 20 places will be reserved for students from Scottish Arctic Network universities (Glasgow Caledonian University, Glasgow School of Art, Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, and the universities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Highlands and Islands, St Andrews and Strathclyde).  Up to four places will also be reserved for students from SCOTMAC partner Trent University in Canada.

There is no cost to students to take part in SCOTMAC, but selected applicants are asked to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.  Selected applicants from Scottish universities outside of Glasgow will be eligible for a bursary to help defray travel and accommodation costs.

Participation in SCOTMAC conferences is open to students studying any subject at any university in the world.  Priority will be given to undergraduate students.  An application form will normally be made available in the autumn for a conference the following spring.  If no application form appears below,  please do feel free to contact us in order to stay informed about upcoming SCOTMAC conferences, as well as other Polar Aspect educational opportunities .
