Travel Support for Graduate Students and Early Career Scientists to attend the 12th Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate

1 penguins21 February 2017:

The Physical Science Group of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the International Commission on Polar Meteorology (ICPM) of the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) have provided funding to support the participation of graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.) and early career scientists (within 5 years of graduation of either Ph.D. or M.S.) in the 12th Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate. Support can cover the registration fee of $145, hotel accommodation, and airfare. Depending on the number of applications received and their merit, partial support may be awarded to some or all applications. Preference will be given to under-represented groups and applicants from countries with developing Antarctic programs. Selections will be made by the Organizing Committee for the workshop.

To apply: Send a short CV (1 page), a brief statement of the benefit to your career of attendance and how you will contribute to the workshop (1 page), and a budget for the support you are seeking. Send these materials to Dr. David Bromwich, bromwich.1@osu.edu. Receipt of applications will be acknowledged.

Deadline for receipt of applications: April 1, 2017.

Awards will be announced by April 15, 2017. Successful applicants will pay for their justified expenditures and will get refunded later (up to the award amount) based on receipts provided.

Things to remember: The funding is limited and applications will likely be very competitive. Please keep these factors in mind when completing your application, and make your best case for support.
