The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) has recently launched its 2024 Antarctic-related Fellowships for early-career researchers.

Following the launch of the Polar Initiative in 2022, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has funded an additional SCAR fellowship and as a result SCAR will offer in total four to five fellowships of up to USD $15,000 each for 2024.

The SCAR Fellowship programme is for PhD students, or those within five years of completing a PhD (on the day of the application deadline). Fellows undertake research at an institute in one of the 46 SCAR Member countries different from that of the applicant’s origin and current residence.

Eligibility for SCAR Fellowship:

  • Current PhD researcher or within 5 years of finishing PhD;
  • Visiting an Antarctic research facility in or run by a SCAR Member country, which is different from applicant’s (a) country of origin and (b) current country of residence;
  • Should contribute to the objectives of one or more of SCAR’s science groups, including the Humanities and Social Sciences group, and/or the Scientific Research Programmes.

The deadline for the SCAR fellowship applications is 31 July 2024. Find out how to apply for the fellowship through the link below.
