COMNAP and IAATO Fellowships are now open for applications.
The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), COMNAP and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) have been working together for many years to support talented early-career researchers, scientists, engineers, environmental managers, and other professionals to strengthen international capacity and cooperation in fields such as climate, biodiversity, conservation, humanities and astrophysics research by way of an annual funding opportunity. For 2019, these Antarctic organisations are joined by the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) who will each support additional Antarctic-related fellowships.
In 2019 the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programmes (COMNAP) and the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) will each offer one fellowship with funding of up to USD $15,000. The fellowships enable early-career researchers to join a project team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often creating partnerships that last for many years and over many Antarctic field seasons.
Deadline for applications: 10th June 2019
These fellowships have been announced in conjunction with the Scientific Scholarship Scheme of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The CCAMLR Scholarship provides funding of up to AUD $30,000 to assist early-career scientists to participate in the work of the CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups over a period of two years. This year there are two calls for CCAMLR Scholarship applications, the first with a deadline of 29th March 2019 and the second with a deadline of 1 October 2019.
The 2019 SCAR and WMO Fellowship scheme will be launched in a few weeks time.
