APECS International seeks to recognize and honor the efforts of its mentors within the international polar scientific community. The APECS International Mentorship Award is designed to recognize the time and energy that mentors devote to Early Career Researchers (ECRs) each year, and their efforts to build a community of support. APECS will award a mentor who works with the ECR polar scientific community (this covers Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine areas). APECS encourages ECRs around the world to nominate mentors who are deserving of this recognition.
If your mentor has provided you with an outstanding help throughout your career, then the best way to tell them how grateful you are is to nominate them for APECS International Mentorship Award 2021. In addition, we specifically encourage APECS members, committees (including national committees), and project groups to nominate a mentor who has made an outstanding contribution to their committees, APECS activities, or the organization as a whole. In 2021, a single award will be awarded.
Nominations are welcomed until 15 May 2021.
More information on submitting a nomination can be found on our APECS International Mentorship Award webpage.
