The Fulbright Arctic Initiative provides a platform for scholars from across the Arctic region to engage in collaborative thinking, analysis, problem-solving, and multi-disciplinary research. At its core, the Fulbright Arctic Initiative creates a network to stimulate international scientific collaboration on Arctic issues while increasing mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of other countries. During the U.S. chairmanship of the Arctic Council (2015-2017), the Fulbright Arctic Initiative brought together 16 scholars from across the Arctic region.

Using a collaborative model to translate theory into practice, the scholars collectively addressed public policy research questions relevant to the Arctic nations' shared challenges in energy, water, health, and infrastructure.
