A joint initiative of the InBev-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.
The Fellowship is open to researchers studying for a PhD or within 10 years of completing their PhD from any country around the world.
Applicants should submit an original research proposal for a project which will include field campaigns operating from the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica station (located in Dronning Maud Land in East Antarctica at 71.57°S 23.20°E).

Previous laureates of the InBev-Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship have been:
- 2012: German glaciologist Dr. Reinhard Drews, based at the Glaciology Laboratory at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), received the grant for the Be:Wise research project, which investigates how the potential disintegration of Antarctic floating ice shelves could contribute to increased ice flow from inland glaciers, and a resulting rise in global sea levels.
- 2010: Dr. Steven Goderis from the Department of Geology at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) received the grant for his Micrometa project, which aims to gain better insight into the origin and the evolution of planets and our solar system through the study of micrometeorites.
- 2008: Dr. Elie Verleyen from the Laboratory of Protistology & Aquatic Ecology at Ghent University for his research project Delaqua received the grant to study the deglaciation history and past changes in ice-sheet thickness and climate in the Sør Rondane Massif in East Antarctica during the Late Quaternary.
Please note that in 2008 and 2010, the Fellowship was only open to Belgian researchers. In 2012, the Fellowship was opened to researchers based anywhere in the world.
