Early Career Scientists
The XXXII SCAR Local Organizing Committee together with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists plan a variety of opportunities for early career scientists, from travel grants to workshops, and social functions.
The NSF Office of Polar Programs is providing funds intended primarily to support early-career researchers, graduate students and individuals who will increase the diversity of the polar science community. The SCAR US office has more information about this travel grant opportunity for US scientists.
