Early career scientist opportunities

The Antarctic Science International Bursary are awards of up to £5000, made annually to support the development of the careers of promising young scientists working in any field of Antarctic science. The purpose of the award is to broaden the scope of an existing research project, especially for postdoctoral studies, through:

  • funding extra field or laboratory work;
  • purchasing/contributing towards the cost of a key piece of equipment;
  • funding international collaboration
