The 2021 SCAR SC-HASS conference promotes Japan/Japanese-related Antarctic humanities and social sciences studies, and/or collaborative research with Japanese scholars, particularly with Japanese early-career scholars, or scholars in Japanese universities and research institutions. A small number of competitively selected Rokkodai Fellowships will be offered to participants satisfying these conditions.
The fellowship covers full travel and accommodation expenses (most economical tickets and accommodation reserved and purchased by the designated travel agency) and/or research grants amounting up to JPY 150,000 per person for related research and drafting of reports based on the presentation (under contract with the Convenor and in accordance with the Kobe University financial rules). There is a section for this purpose in the abstract submission portal.
Details of the fellowship will be provided after pre-selection of candidates in August based on the abstract and the explanation.
Full details of the SC-HASS conference are available on the Conference website.
