Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

 

Banner 3 Mentors

APECS International would like to recognize and honor the efforts of their mentors within the international polar science community. The APECS International Mentorship Award has been created to acknowledge the time and energy that mentors dedicate to early career researchers each year, and their efforts in building a supportive community. Two awards will be given out every year, one to an Arctic and one to an Antarctic-focused mentor.
