The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) has opened its Visiting Scholar Scheme, which provides individual awards of up to USD $5000.
The scheme is for any scientists and academics (more than five years after completing their PhD) whose research contributes to SCAR's objectives, as embodied in the Science Groups, Scientific Research Programmes and Humanities and Social Sciences. The host institute must be in or operated by one of the SCAR Member countries and must be a country different from that of (i) the candidate's current position and (ii) the candidate's origin (although the latter may be waived at the discretion of the Selection Committee). Visiting Scholarships are awarded purely by competitive selection.
In order to apply, scientists and academics are required to first contact and liaise with the appropriate host, to secure the support of an organisation or institute undertaking Antarctic research that would benefit from the visit.
Both the home and host institutes must be willing to take part in the SCAR Visiting Scholar Scheme.
