> SCAR, in cooperation with APECS and IASC, is pleased to announce the availability of travel support for POLAR2018 <https://www.polar2018.org/>. 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
> 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 (info at apecs.is <mailto:info at apecs.is>) if you want to take advantage of having your early-career travel funds for the conference distributed via this APECS-led application process.
> 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 <https://www.apecs.is/events/upcoming-event-highlights/polar-2018/travel-awards/2310-travel-awards-for-polar2018.html>.
> 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 <mailto:info at apecs.is>.
