InBev-Baillet Latour Antarctica Fellowship

The InBev-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.

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).
