Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


As many of you know Inspiring Girls Expeditions grew from the original glaciology-inspired "Girls on Ice" through the support of this whole community over two decades. Thank you!!

Our applications are open for this FREE field science opportunity for girls*. Our mission to empower young women through science, art, and wilderness exploration. Please to share with teachers or others in your community. We are an international organization with some elligibility restrictions, please see the website for details.

This is *not* a program limited to gifted and talented - we want ALL girls*, especially those who think they shouldn't apply because they won't be selected. So please share widely!

*New applications must be started by Jan 24*, then they have about a week to finish them. PLEASE share this with your students!

*A video to inspire you and to share*

Finally, we are supported partially by government science agencies, but we rely a lot on individual donations - many of you have contributed in the past, thank you.

Right now we have a challenge set out for us to raise $20,000 by the end of the month, to stimulate reaching that goal, an anonymous donor is matching every single gift, so a donation is worth double right now. We all appreciate any gift you can give, but also consider anyone you know who works in the corporate world and is looking for an organization to give to to make a difference.

*Here is the website for this campaign*

*we are inclusive of all minotirized genders, including girls, trans, nonbinary, genderqueer
