Fellowship opportunity for field research in Antarctica

Young polar scientists were invited to submit their application for the 2016 - 2018 Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship by 15 September 2016.

The call for proposals for the 2016 – 2018 Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship is now closed. A joint initiative of the Baillet Latour Fund and the International Polar Foundation, the €150,000 research grant aims to promote scientific excellence in Antarctica and underscores the crucial role polar science plays in furthering our understanding of the Earth and how it functions.

Call for proposals

The Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship provides young scientists with the opportunity to conduct research in East Antarctica operating out of the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica research station.

The call for proposals was open to current doctoral researchers and researchers within 10 years of obtaining their PhD from all countries. The Fellowship provides funding for field campaigns during two austral summers (2016–17 and 2017–18). The successful applicant will continue to work at their current research organisation.

Scientific research fields

Young researchers interested in conducting research in the atmospheric sciences, glaciology, geosciences and microbiology (excluding marine microbiology) at, or near, the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica were encouraged to apply.

The deadline for 2016 – 2018 Fellowship applications was 15 September 2016.
