Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Ever wanted to go to a conference/meeting/workshop or field school and did not know what channels to follow to find travel funding? Need a little bit of seed money to start a new research project? Or maybe you need some extra funds to have a few more analyses done to complete your next paper?

APECS has created an international and interdisciplinary database of funding resources. However, it is only as good as the information we receive. If you know of an opportunity in your country which is not here please fill in this form.

This database is not meant to be for specific calls for jobs or research positions, please see the Job Board for those positions. Another comprehensive database for funding can be found here (Research Professional).

Tips: Click on the title of the award for more details and click on the blue column headings to sort alphabetically.


  • 'Country' is the country of the funding organization not where the country where the award may be used.
  • Where a deadline is the first of the month, the previous month is listed as the deadline i.e. if the deadline is 1 August then July will be listed.
  • This database does not include internal opportunities i.e. those only available to registered students of a single institution.
