SCAR logo white backgroundSCAR 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.
