Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


apply for the IASC fellowships 2023


The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), in cooperation with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), is launching its IASC Fellowships Program 2023.

The IASC Fellowship Program is meant to engage early career researchers in the work of the IASC Working Groups (WGs): Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human and Terrestrial. This year, we will offer 8 IASC Fellowships. As part of the Polar Initiative with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, two of those Fellowships will be generously funded by the foundation.   

  • At least one IASC Fellow will be chosen per IASC WG
  • At least one IASC Indigenous Fellow will be chosen; this individual will be an early career Arctic Indigenous Scholar or Knowledge Holder who can choose which IASC WG to engage in. 

The deadline for applications for all fellowships is 30 September 2022. Find out more about the Fellowships and how to apply for them on the APECS website.
