The fellowships are for postgraduate and/or post-doctoral researchers from within the 34 SCAR Member Countries (including the US), and will be limited to scientists who received their Ph.D. within five years of application. The Fellowships are intended to allow researchers from one SCAR Member country to undertake short term visits to major international laboratories, field facilities, and/or home institutions in or operated by other SCAR Member countries, so as to become acquainted with recent advances in research and/or to develop long-term scientific links and partnerships. The work shall be carried out in a research group of a SCAR nation different from that of the applicant’s origin.
Awards will be up to US$15,000, providing, as needed, an economy class round trip airfare and a modest subsistence allowance for the fellowship period. The Fellow’s home institute will bear all expenses incurred in his or her own nation (domestic travel, visa costs, etc.), and the host institute will waive any bench fees that they might normally charge trainees. The number of awards will depend on the budget available and the quality of the applications.
Research proposals should address one or more of the five research programmes endorsed by SCAR: Antarctic Climate Evolution; Evolution and Biodiversity in the Antarctic; Antarctica and the Global Climate System; Astronomy and Astrophysics from Antarctica (AAA).
