National Contributions to SCAR

The tables below show the National Contribution levels associated with each SCAR member from 2014 to 2018.

Countries becoming new SCAR members join at the Associate Member level. This is intended to be a temporary categorization as we hope involvement in SCAR helps to build their programmes and thus they move to the next levels. 

Full members may also choose to move to higher levels as their own research activities broaden and their standing in the Antarctic community increases.  

Changes to the National Contribution structure and fees are decided at the biennial SCAR Delegates Meetings.
