The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programmes (COMNAP) have launched their 2016 Fellowship Programme for early-career researchers. The fellowships are worth up to USD $15,000 each and up to six fellowships in total are on offer for 2016. They enable early-career researchers to join a project team from another country for a short time, opening up new opportunities and often creating research partnerships that last for many years and over many Antarctic research seasons. The deadline for applications is 1 June 2016. Full details of the scheme, including the application process, are on the SCAR website at

The SCAR and COMNAP Fellowships are launched in conjunction with the CCAMLR (Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) Scientific Scholarship Scheme. For more information, visit
