Grants to support travel for early-career scholars (ECS) planning to attend the SCAR 2020 Open Science Conference are offered by the Action Group on PoLSciNex to those who make a research presentation at Session 44 on “Connecting legal and policy needs with Antarctic research”.
The grants will be up to $1000 USD per person for up to three ECS presenters, including Ph.D students, to assist with their travel and registration costs.
(1) A description and/or evidence of your ECS or student status;
(2) Your submitted abstract as evidence that you will present in Session 44; and
(3) Estimated required travel and registration fees to attend the OSC
Applications will be accepted until 9 March 2020, and will then be reviewed by the Co-leads of PoLSciNex AG and awards made conditional on abstract acceptance.
Please note that other SC-HASS travel bursaries for SCAR 2020 will be announced shortly.
