The SCAR Fellowship Programme is for PhD students, or those within five years of having completed a PhD, to undertake research at major international laboratories, field facilities, and/or institutes in or operated by SCAR member countries with the goal of exposing them to recent advances in research and to develop long-term scientific links and partnerships.
The work must be carried out in a research group of a SCAR member country different from that of the applicant’s origin and current residence. Fellowships are awarded on the selection criteria for competitive selection, which are clearly stated in the Evaluation section on the Information page.
Topics of projects proposed should align with SCAR’s mission and ideally with one or more of our various groups. SCAR fellowships are open to researchers from SCAR member countries.
