The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) Fellowship Program is meant to engage early career scientists and Arctic Indigenous scholars and knowledge holders in the work of the IASC Working Groups (WGs) — Atmosphere, Cryosphere, Marine, Social & Human and Terrestrial — and the work of the Sustaining Arctic Observing Network (SAON)'s Roadmap for Arctic Observing and Data Systems (ROADS).

The APECS International Directorate organizes the application review process and invites anyone who did not / will not apply for the IASC Fellowships this year to help.

We do not require you to have any previous experience in reviewing applications and the APECS International Directorate will provide reviewers with instructions and score sheets. You must be available to read through and score applications in the end of October and beginning of November (the number of applications you will review depends on the size of the reviewer pool).

Reviewing materials (applications, proposals, manuscripts) is a common part of a research career, and this is a great way to gain some confidence and experience with this task! This is also a great opportunity for those who are thinking about applying to the IASC Fellowship Program in the future. 

Sign up to be a reviewer here.
