2024 SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) Program (Funding Available)

2024 SCOSTEP Visiting Scholar (SVS) program is a capacity building activity of SCOSTEP. The SVS program complements the current scientific program, PRESTO and SCOSTEP’s public outreach activities.

The mission of PRESTO (Predictability of Variable Solar-Terrestrial Coupling) is to identify predictability of the variable solar-terrestrial coupling and its performance metrics through modeling, measurements, and data analysis, and to strengthen communication between scientists and users. The SVS program provides training to graduate students in well-established solar terrestrial physics institutes, for periods of one to three months. The training will help the awardees advance in their career in solar-terrestrial physics using the skills they learned during the training.
