Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


nsf logoNSF remains committed to being supportive and as responsive as possible to the needs of the research community in the face of challenges posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The NSF website has up-to-date information and answers to Frequently Asked Questions for a broad NSF audience.

This guidance is for researchers funded by the Arctic Sciences Section. The Arctic Sciences Section remains firmly committed to protecting the health of program participants and to preventing the spread of COVID-19 to Arctic communities and research stations. At the same time, the Arctic Sciences Section is striving to ensure that researchers meet their proposed project goals to the extent possible in light of COVID-19 impacts on fieldwork. The Arctic Sciences Section will continue to plan and implement COVID-19 strategies according to the science-based public health guidelines issued by the CDC and World Health Organization. We must also respect state, local, and tribal concerns about researcher travel in and near communities in the Arctic.
