In addition to the generous support by the organisations funding our APECS International Directorate, APECS is very fortunate to receive funding from various organisations for some of its international projects, initiatives and events. For more information on these collaborations you can also visit the career resources, events and research sections of our website. This list is updated every year to lists current financial support received for major APECS international activities. In addition, there are numerous sponsors that the APECS National Committees receive funding from for national activities. We also want to thank all those organisations that have contributed to APECS projects in the past.
Antarctic Science Ltd is a charitable company, registered in the UK (Charity Number 1090581), whose role is to promote Antarctic science nationally and internationally. It owns the journal Antarctic Science which is published for the company by Cambridge University Press. All except the last three annual volumes are available free on the CUP web site.

The "Climate and Cryosphere" (CliC) project, encourages and promotes research into the cryosphere and its interactions as part of the global climate system. It seeks to focus attention on the most important issues, encourage communication between researchers with common interests in cryospheric and climate science, promote international co-operation, and highlight the importance of this field of science to policy makers, funding agencies, and the general public. CliC also publishes significant findings regarding the role of the cryosphere in climate, and recommends directions for future study. CliC was established as a core project of the World Climate Research Programme and is co-sponsored by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the International Arctic Science Committee.

The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) encourages, facilitates and promotes leading-edge multi-disciplinary research to foster a greater scientific understanding of the arctic region and its role in the Earth system. New and next generations of researchers will be faced with increasingly critical challenges due to the impacts of climate change on these regions and their global significance. IASC believes it is of great importance to foster these young researchers and promotes and involves early career scientists working in the Arctic by:
- striving for representation of early career researchers in the organization, including participation in business strategy, planning and other meetings and activities;
- providing endorsement, support and dissemination of information on activities, projects and request for participation;
- providing travel grants to early career scientist for selected conferences
The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) is a committee of the International Council for Science (ICSU), that is charged with the initiation, promotion and co-ordination of scientific research in Antarctica. SCAR also provides international, independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty system. To meet the objective of developing scientific capacity in all SCAR Members, especially with respect to younger scientists, and promoting the incorporation of Antarctic science in education at all levels, SCAR will take the following strategic approach:
works towards building human and institutional capacity for Antarctic science by a variety of means;
promotes education of the public and of students so as to increase awareness of the value of Antarctic science; and
promotes the development of Antarctic science through appropriate means.
provides fellowships to encourage the active involvement of early career scientists and engineers in Antarctic scientific research, and to strengthen international capacity and cooperation in Antarctic research.
