Travel support via this process is currently available for:
- Early career researchers up to 5 years past PhD with an Arctic social sciences research focus (an allowance will be made for career breaks such as parental leave)
- Indigenous Arctic experts of all backgrounds and career stages (defined as researchers and Indigenous knowledge holders who are of Arctic Indigenous heritage, in particular those represented by the Arctic Council Permanent Participants)
- Scholars from remote Arctic communities: scholars residing in remote places may be given some funding (there is no definition of remoteness: justification needs to be made on a case by case basis as a part of the application).
Further application criteria:
- Active participation in the conference by e.g. presenting a poster or an oral presentation in one of the conference sessions, or being an invited speaker, or session convener etc.
These travel awards may only be able to cover part of your travel costs and the costs will be reimbursed after the meeting. Reimbursement instructions will be sent to the selected travel funding recipients.
Please submit your application via this online form by no later than 24 February 2020 at 15:00 GMT. Late applications will not be considered. No exceptions will be made.
