There are just two weeks remaining to the deadline for applications for the 2015 SCAR and COMNAP Fellowship Schemes.
SCAR and COMNAP fellowships are worth up to US$15,000 each and up to six fellowships in total are on offer for 2015. The fellowships enable early career researchers to join a project team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often creating research partnerships that last many years and over many Antarctic research seasons. The deadline for applications is 3 June 2015.
The SCAR and COMNAP schemes have again been launched in conjunction with CCAMLR’s Scientific Scholarship Scheme, which provides funding of up to AU$ 30,000 to assist early career scientists to participate in the work of the CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups over a period of two years. The scheme was established in 2010 and a maximum of three awards will be made in 2015. The objective of the scheme is to build capacity within the CCAMLR scientific community to help generate and sustain the scientific expertise needed to support the work of CCAMLR in the long-term. The deadline for CCAMLR applications is 1 October 2015. For more information, visit the CCAMLR website.

In preparation for the next SCAR Strategic Plan (2017+), SCAR is undertaking a structural review. As part of this process, we would like you to give your opinion in a (purposefully!) short questionnaire . . . . Note that you only need answer those questions you feel are relevant to you and your organization.
Your feedback by Wednesday 8th April is much appreciated!
The questionnaire is available at: http://goo.gl/forms/
