The POGO-SCOR Fellowship Programme is jointly funded by POGO and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans. The Programme has been a success for around 20 years, with more than 160 fellowships awarded since 2001.
The fellowship program is open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (preferably of PhD level) and post-doctoral fellows of developing countries and countries with economies in transition and involved in oceanographic work. Applicants must be citizens of developing countries or economies in transition, as defined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD. A list of eligible countries is available in the right-hand menu. The main purpose of the program is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications. Priority is given to applicants in the early stages of career development. This fellowship is intended to support training in oceanographic observations, not to learn research techniques.
