Applications call for CCAMLR Scientific Scholarships Scheme. TheCCAMLR Scientific Scholarship Scheme aims to assist early career scientists1 to participate in the work of the Scientific Committee and its working groups. The overall 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.
CCAMLR Scientific 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.
Scholarships are open to scientists from all CCAMLR Members. However, 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.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to ensure that sufficient information is provided to allow the Review Panel to determine the scientific contribution that would be made to the work of CCAMLR. This should include the specific objectives of the work to be undertaken, how this relates to the priorities of the Scientific Committee, and provide sufficient detail to determine exactly what data and analyses will be required to achieve the stated objectives.
The Scholarship Review Panel (led by the Senior Vice-Chair of the Scientific Committee) will use the proposal using the following criteria
