We would like to remind you that the deadline for travel fellowship applications to attend the upcoming SCAR History Expert Group and the SCAR Social Sciences Action Group workshop is on 28 February 2013.
Please see below for more details regarding the workshop and the eligibility criteria for travel fellowships.
The workshop will focus on the past, present and future of human connections to the Antarctic (and the polar regions in general) in Cambridge, UK, from 1-5 July 2013.
We welcome contributions and participation from Antarctic researchers and our Arctic colleagues to stimulate debate, academic engagement and future dialogue.
A limited amount of funding will be made available to offer a small number of travel grants for research students (PhD and Masters) to attend the workshop - these travel fellowships will be granted on the basis of merit, need (e.g. lack of other funding), and the quality of the abstract submitted.
Those interested in applying for these travel fellowships should submit their applications by 28 February 2013 at the latest. We expect these applications to include a 200-300 word abstract for a research presentation to be given at the workshop, a short one-page application letter detailing career status and need for travel funding as well as an estimated travel budget.
Please submit your applications by 28 February 2013 to both:
Cornelia Luedecke (C.Luedecke@lrz.uni-muenchen.de ) -
chair of the SCAR History EG, and
Daniela Liggett (firstname.lastname@example.org) -
co-chair of the SCAR Social Sciences AG.
If no travel funding is sought, abstracts to be considered for presentation at the workshop should be submitted to Cornelia and Daniela by 31 March 2013.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the workshop.
