Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS 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.

Mentorship Award Maciej Mańko

If your mentor has provided you with outstanding help throughout your career, then the best way to tell them how grateful you are is to nominate them for the APECS International Mentorship Award 2022. 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.

Nominations are welcomed until 31 May 2022 (extended from 30 April). Please visit the APECS International Mentorship Award webpage for the full details on submitting a nomination.
