About the Scholarship
In 2010 CCAMLR established the CCAMLR Scientific Scholarship Scheme to assist early career scientists to participate in the work of the Scientific Committee and its working groups.
The objective of the Scholarship Scheme is to contribute to capacity building within the CCAMLR scientific community in order to help generate and sustain a sound basis of scientific expertise able to support the requirements of CCAMLR in the long term.
- Scholarships are open to scientists from all CCAMLR Members.
- Preference will be given to early career scientists who have not previously, or routinely, participated in CCAMLR working groups and are actively seeking to contribute to important areas of science for CCAMLR.
Scholarships of up to A$30 000 are available to facilitate participation in CCAMLR Scientific Committee workshops or working group meetings, relevant preparatory meetings, and exceptionally, meetings of the Scientific Committee, over a period of two years.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Scholarship Review Panel (led by the Senior Vice-Chair of the Scientific Committee) using the following criteria:
- scientific and other qualifications of the candidate
- relevance to the work priorities and work plan of the Scientific Committee and the extent to which it will strengthen the scientific capacity and engagement in the work of the Scientific Committee of the applying Member
- strength of the linkages between the applicant and mentor scientist(s)
- justification for the budget requested.
