About SCAR Fellowship

The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) is a body of the International Council for Science (ICSU) and is the leading independent organisation for facilitating and coordinating Antarctic research, and for identifying issues emerging from greater scientific understanding of the region that should be brought to the attention of policy makers. Its major objective is to initiate, develop, and co-ordinate high-quality international scientific research in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean region, and on the role of the Antarctic region in the Earth system. It works closely with other organisations with a polar interest. SCAR is pleased to announce that it is again working with the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs (COMNAP) to promote an additional research fellowship opportunity. Details of the two fellowship schemes are provided in this announcement of opportunity.
