Students on Ice (SOI) is proud to offer our alumni the opportunity to apply for an Inspiration Grant. The SOI grant program was initiated in 2014 by SOI alumni Tarek and Sophie. Inspired by their experiences on the SOI Arctic 2014 and 2015 expeditions, and by the skills, abilities, vision and enthusiasm of all participants, Tarek Sherif and Sophie Nicholson decided to support the passion and ideas of their fellow Alumni through a generous grant program. SOI is thankful that since 2014, our grant program has been steadily growing with the support of numerous dedicated organizations. This years 2017 Inspiration Grants have been provided by alumni Tarek & Sophie, Parks Canada and the SM Blair Family Foundation.
