I'm proud to be one of only 50 high school and 50 college students selected for this trip. We will study biology, geology and other Earth Sciences at a level and setting I could not otherwise experience. My friends and family are surprised at a Florida boy seeking to spend his Christmas Break studying science some 6,000 miles away in a seemingly "Frozen Polar Wasteland" when home is warm, within sight of Coconut Palms and Manatees- but I have to go where the opportunities are greatest and the SOI Student Expedition program is truly amazing for a Natural Sciences oriented high schooler.
Previous expedition members tell me it will be a profound life changing experience. The International Travel, Advanced Field Study, Adventure with College Professors and like minded Students From Other Countries all compressed into two weeks- I believe it will cement the scope of my future College and Career choices.

Students on Ice Antarctic University Expedition 2013 for background info. Maybe after this someone will put together a REAL scholarship program for American students?
My Expediton is December 28, 2013 to January 9, 2014, so I need sponsor contributions as soon as possible.
This video shows what inspires me to go on this trip... Enjoy;
