SCAR launches its 2020 Antarctic-related Fellowships for early-career researchers today. SCAR will offer 3 to 4 fellowships of up to USD $15,000 each for 2020. 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.
The deadline for fellowship applications is 26 August 2020.

The SCAR Secretariat has compiled a list of frequently asked questions on our website, where you can also find an overview of past and present SCAR Fellows.
Other opportunities from partners
The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs (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 science support and facilitation, environmental management implementation, and climate, biodiversity, conservation, humanities and astrophysics research by way of an annual funding opportunity. In 2019, these Antarctic organisations were joined by the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators(IAATO). IAATO supported two Antarctic fellows in their inaugural round and join in 2020 to support an early career person.
The COMNAP and IAATO Fellowship Scheme and the CCAMLR Scientific Scholarship Scheme also launch today. Read the Announcement of Opportunity 2020 here.
Full details of these schemes are available on their respective websites below.

The objective of the scheme is to build capacity within the CCAMLR scientific community to help generate and sustain the scientific expertise needed to support the work of CCAMLR in the long-term. The deadline for CCAMLR scientific scholarship applications is 1 October 2020.
