Association of Polar Early Career Scientists

Nominations are now open for the 2022 SCAR Medals. These medals provide an opportunity for peer recognitions of those who exemplify the best of the Antarctic community. The SCAR Medals are the Medal for Excellent in Antarctic Research, the Medal for International Coordination, and the Medal for Education and Communication.  

The nomination process for the 2022 Medals has been revised. Initial nominations for each Medal will simply require a short online form to be filled out. If the initial nomination is successful, the nominator will be asked to provide additional materials. SCAR promotes diversity, equality and inclusion at all levels, and therefore we encourage nomination by individuals from all backgrounds.

There are no age restrictions or limits on nominees and no higher education degree requirements - everyone is eligible to be nominated. However, self-nominations are not accepted.

Nominations are open until 1 June 2022 (extended from 18 May 2022).
Check the SCAR website for details on the recised nomination process for the 2022 SCAR Medal and find out how to nominate someone here.
