SYNOPSIS

The Postdoctoral Fellowships in Polar Regions Research program supports training and research for recent doctoral degree recipients in any aspect of scientific study of the Antarctic and/or the Arctic within the Division of Polar Programs (POLAR) program areas (http://www.nsf.gov/div/index.jsp?div=plr ). The program also provides travel grants to those eligible for fellowships for the purpose of meeting prospective mentors and colleagues, presenting seminars, discussing mutual research and/or education interests, evaluating facilities and professional development opportunities, and initiating collaborative relationships.

The fellowship program develops and trains recent Ph.D.s (especially those new to polar research) with concomitant goals to

  • promote scientific research in polar regions;
  • support innovative research in emerging areas;
  • encourage interdisciplinary research;
  • foster activities that create broader impacts for science and society; and
  • increase the participation of under-represented groups in polar regions research.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY

This program provides educational opportunities for  Graduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows . Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program guidelines above.
