Early-career Fellowships enable early-career researchers to join a project team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often creating partnerships that last many years and over many Antarctic research seasons. In 2019, thanks to the support of France, India and Korea, there were several additional SCAR fellowship opportunities. There was also an additional opportunity for researchers from developing countries, through a collaboration with the WMO.
- Eligibility: Current PhD researchers or within 5 years of finishing a PhD, visiting a facility in or run by a SCAR member country, whose research contributes to SCAR's objectives as embodied in the Science Groups and Scientific Research Programmes.
