Organizers of the 2015 Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting announce the availability of travel awards to support early-career scientist participation. Limited funding is available for airfare, lodging, and per diem.  An early career scientist is defined as one who is either a current student or within the first five years of completing their most recent degree (graduate or undergraduate) in study of the Arctic region.

Travel award applications, due 9 October 2015, are available here: http://www.arcus.org/search-program/meetings/2015/aoosm/travel-support

The Association of Early Career Polar Scientists (APECS) and the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) will review applications. Award announcements will be made by Thursday, 15 October 2015. The number of awards is dependent upon funding. Please contact Judy Fahnestock, judy@arcus.org, with any questions.

The meeting will be held 17-19 November 2015 in Seattle, Washington and will bring together individuals and teams involved in the collection, processing, analysis, and use of observations in the Arctic from academia, agencies, industry, and other organizations. For further information, online registration and abstract submission is available on the meeting website: http://www.arcus.org/search-program/meetings/2015/aoosm
