  • Expand their work across traditional disciplinary lines
  • Develop new partnerships connecting the polar regions and/or non-polar research communities
  • Provide entry to researchers who have traditionally had limited access to polar research resources, sites and facilities
  • The fellowship program encourages the integration of new investigators who have not previously worked in polar regions and/or innovative techniques that have not previously been applied to polar science into polar research.

Join OPP Program Directors to learn more about the PRF, eligibility, upcoming deadlines, and more.
