Travel Awards available to attend POLAR2018 - Apply by 28 February!

Allen Pope
The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) in cooperation with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) are pleased to announce the availability of travel support for the POLAR 2018 Conference (15 - 26 June 2018, Davos Switzerland).

APECS will be administering the funds provided by IASC and SCAR and will coordinate the application and distribution process of the funds on behalf of these organisations. We are continuing to work with other polar organisations to raise additional funds and encourage our partner organisations to get in touch with the APECS Secretariat at [hidden email] if you want to take advantage of having your early career travel funds for the conference distributed via this APECS-led application process.

Travel support via this process is currently available for:
-- Early career researchers up to 5 years past PhD with an Arctic and / or Antarctic and / or Cryospheric research focus (an allowance will be made for career breaks such as parental leave)
-- Indigenous researchers of all career stages (defined as researchers who are of Arctic Indigenous heritage, in particular those represented by the Arctic Council Permanent Participants)

These travel awards will only be able to cover part of your travel costs and the costs will be reimbursed after the meeting based on receipts that you provide (unfortunately, upfront payment is not possible).

Please read the more detailed announcement text and requirements for the funding and submit your application via the online form on the APECS website.

Application deadline for the Travel Awards will be on 28 February 2018 at 23:59 GMT. Late applications will not be considered. No exceptions will be made.

If you have any questions please contact the APECS Secretariat at [hidden email]
