We invite you to join us at the upcoming Office of Polar Programs (OPP) Antarctic virtual Office Hour this Thursday, November 17 from 2pm to 3pm Eastern time.

The Antarctic Sciences (ANT) Section of the OPP will be hosting this virtual Office Hour to:

  • Provide Antarctic Sciences updates,
  • Introduce the two new Antarctic Science solicitations, NSF 23-508 and NSF 23-509,
  • Provide you with an overview of the Antarctic Research Vessel (ARV), courtesy of Tim McGovern from OPP’s Antarctic Infrastructure and Logistics Section,
  • And engage with you in a question-and-answer session.

All USAP participants – including current awardees, pending proposers, and future proposers – are welcome to attend.
