The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are pleased to announce that thePOGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship programme for 2018 is now open for applications.

The deadline for applications is 9 April 2018.

The program is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation system for the ocean, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, graduate students (preferably PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.

The fellowship offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centers for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on aspects of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation. It provides financial support to cover the return airfare from the fellow's home country to the host institution, and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence for the period of the visit.
