Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


SCAR is pleased to announce the 2024 SCAR Ant-ICON | SC-ATS science-policy fellowship programme for early-mid career researchers (EMCRs). The aim of the fellowship programme is to provide the opportunity for EMCRs to gain experience in the science-policy interface from participating in Antarctic policy forums through the preparation and potential submission of a science/policy paper based on their research, in collaboration with SC-ATS. The fellowships are open to early-mid career researchers from all SCAR member countries. Preference will be given to researchers who have not previously participated in these meetings and are actively seeking to contribute.

The fellowship programme will fund two fellows in 2024: one to participate in the CEP/ATCM meetings in Kochi, India from 20 - 30  May 2024 (expected start date in January 2024), and one to participate in the SC-CAMLR/CCAMLR meetings in Hobart, TAS, Australia in October 2024 (expected start date in April/May 2024). There may also be opportunities to participate in additional online meetings or activities related to these forums.

Application deadline: 8 December 2023
