Banner 3 Mentors

APECS International seeks to recognize and honor the efforts of its mentors within the international polar scientific community. The APECS International Mentorship Award is designed to recognize the time and energy that mentors devote to Early Career Researchers (ECRs) each year, and their efforts to build a community of support. APECS will award a mentor who works with the ECR polar scientific community (this covers Arctic, Antarctic, and Alpine areas). APECS encourages ECRs around the world to nominate mentors who are deserving of this recognition.

APECS encourages ECRs around the world to nominate mentors who deserve this recognition. We ask APECS members, APECS National Committees and Project Groups to nominate a person who has been an outstanding mentor to them or their (project) group or committee throughout their career. In 2023 a single award will be handed out.
