Fellowships

Early-career Fellowships enable early-career researchers to join a project team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often creating partnerships that last many years and over many Antarctic research seasons.  In 2019, thanks to the support of France, India and Korea, there were several additional SCAR fellowship opportunities. There was also an additional opportunity for researchers from developing countries, through a collaboration with the WMO.


Visiting Scholarships

The Visiting Scholar Awards are directed at researchers and academics whose work contributes to the research objectives of SCAR, offering the opportunity for them to undertake a short-term visit to another SCAR member country to provide training and mentoring. Two additional Scholarships are available in 2019 thanks to support from India and Switezerland.
