Young scientists from the US

The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) offers an NSF-sponsored opportunity for U.S. early career scientists, postdocs, and PhD students in the U.S. to apply for travel support to the October 2020 ICYS and IPICS Open Science meeting. Under-represented minorities and scientists from minority-serving institutions are especially encouraged to apply. Successful applicants will be provided air and train tickets and will be registered for the conference by IDP. In addition, successful applicants will receive reimbursement of receipts for their cost of lodging and meals up to a potential maximum of $1,200 US; the exact amount will depend on the number of qualified applicants.  Applicants must plan to attend the Oct 18 ICYS meeting as well. Applicants will be informed of the results of their application from IDP by April 6, 2020.

Applications will be accepted until 31 March, 2020. To apply, create a single pdf document that contains the following information:

  • A one-page brief CV that includes your full name, current position, affiliation, mailing address, telephone number, education, and publication list
  • Your draft one-page draft abstract for the IPICS meeting

Please email your application to Icedrill at Dartmouth dot edu before 31 March, 2020 under the subject heading “Application for Early Career Travel”.
