The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has launched a call for   applications for the sixth round of its scholarship awards.

The call runs from 3 to 28 March 2021, and will mark the 10th anniversary of the programme, under which the first awards were made in 2011.

Research proposals are encouraged from, but are not limited to, the following topics: living soils, biodiversity, regenerative viticulture, agroforestry, water management and terrestrial carbon cycle.

“We are delighted to announce another call for applications under the IPCC Scholarship Programme, and look forward to hearing from early-career scientists from developing countries, especially Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States”, said IPCC Vice-Chair Ko Barrett.

Each scholarship award is for a maximum amount of €15,000 per year for up to two years during the period 2021-2023.

Applicants should register via the application portal here: https://apps.ipcc.ch/scholarship/

The deadline is 28 March 2021 at midnight CET.

The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established with the funds received from the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize award to the IPCC. The Programme was further made possible through the generous contribution of its funding partners, including the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Cuomo Foundation.
