The APECS Canada National Committee and the ArcticNet Student Association (ASA) have joined forces to create the APECS Canada and ASA mentor award. Nominations for this award is done through an open nomination process each year and will be presented annually at the ArcticNet Annual General Meeting. The purpose of the APECS Canada and ASA mentor award is to recognize and honor the efforts of their mentors within the polar science community of Canada. This award has been created to acknowledge the time and energy that mentors dedicate to early career researchers each year, and their efforts in building a supportive community.
We are pleased to announce that the inaugral Mentor award will be presented to the winner during the banquet at the ArcticNet Annual Science Meeting in Halifax on Thursday, December 12th, 2013.
