The application period is now open for the 2020 Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) Visiting Scholars Program. Awards for these scholarships are very competitive. For the 2019 program, 30 applications were received, but only 6 scholarships were awarded. The program, started in 2009, has awarded scholarships to scientists at all career levels, from Ph.D. students to retired professors, but because the purpose of the program is teaching and mentoring, extensive experience in working with students gives applicants a higher chance of success. See here for a list of past SCOR Visiting Scholars.
Applications are due by 1 December 2019 and selections will be made by the SCOR Committee on Capacity Building by 1 January 2020. Application forms and instructions can be found HERE.
