Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The Polar Science Early Career Community Office (PSECCO) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs (OPP) invite registration for their upcoming NSF Polar Program Officer Chat for Early Career Scientists webinar. This webinar will take place 12 July 2022, 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. AKDT (3:00-4:30 p.m. EDT).

The first hour of the webinar will be an entry-level overview of the Office of Polar Programs, and information directly relevant to polar early career scientists.

Questions that may be covered during the webinar include:

  • What is a program officer and why it is relevant to know them?
  • What sorts of questions might be good to ask a program officer as a polar early career scientist considering putting in a proposal?
  • How should early career scientists best stay updated on solicitations?
  • What are some current opportunities that the NSF OPP would like to highlight for early career scientists?

During the last thirty minutes of the webinar, early career scientists will have an opportunity to ask program officers questions and/or engage in general conversation as a group related to OPP and NSF funding.
