Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) is excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Raskin Scholarship (due 10/1) and ESIP Student Fellows (due 10/9).

ESIP Student Fellows are graduate students interested in bridging the gap between informatics and Earth Science. This fellowship provides students a chance to work closely with professionals in an interdisciplinary, cross-sector group (ESIP collaboration area) on current Earth Science problems. Student fellows become engaged in ESIP collaboration areas as rapporteurs, documenting group activities on monthly telecons and at ESIP’s semi-annual meetings (Summer/Winter). As fellows become more familiar with collaboration-area activities they may choose to integrate their own research, which can result in publication and additional funding opportunities. Student Fellows will receive a stipend of $2000 plus travel expenses to the summer and winter ESIP meetings.

The Raskin Scholarship is in memory of Rob Raskin, a long-time ESIP community member and major contributor to Earth science informatics field. The scholarship is awarded to a current graduate student studying an Earth science, computer science or closely related discipline and have an interest in fields related to current technical, scientific or applied activities of the ESIP Federation. In addition to a cash prize, the awarded scholar will give a keynote talk at the 2015 ESIP Summer Meeting.

Please feel free to forward these opportunities along to other networks of interest. For full details on the either of these opportunities see the ESIPFed website. For questions, please e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
