Purpose of the Visiting Scholar Scheme
When preparing their proposal, candidates must focus on the core purpose of the Visiting Scholar Scheme, which is to build capacity in countries with smaller or less-developed Antarctic research programmes. This will be the primary aspect of the application to be evaluated and candidates should consider whether their proposed visit fits with these criteria. Visits can be either to smaller and developing programmes or from smaller and developing programmes, so the capacity building process can be proposed in either way. The candidate’s career stage will be considered as part of the evaluation process.
Components of the Award The Visiting Scholar Scheme provides individual awards of up to USD $5000.
The 2018 scheme is now open. Applications close on December 3rd 2018.
