Summary of activities from 2016-18 and any other important matters
This paper announces a Joint WMO-SCAR Fellowship Programme for early-career scientists. Those supported will be expected to undertake research, on a topic that is relevant to the programme priority areas of WMO, at major international laboratories, field facilities, and/or institutes in or operated by SCAR member countries with the goal to expose them to recent advances in research and to develop long-term scientific links and partnerships. Selected fellows will not be expected to come from SCAR member countries in keeping with aim of the WMO Fellowship Programme to support the education and training of qualified and suitable candidates, particularly from least-developed and developing countries, countries with economies in transition, and countries more vulnerable to natural disasters.
Summary Budget 2017 to 2020
The full amounts for the Fellowships, and the total per annum, to be provided by WMO, will be finalized in the lead up to the first announcement.
