The call for the annual Antarctic Science Bursary is now open. The bursary supports the development of early career scientists from any Antarctic field and any country through grants of up to  £6000. These grants can be used for:

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


  • Grants are not intended to support existing project but for distinct extension activity.
  • Applicants normally need to be enrolled in a PhD or employed as an early career researcher, with payment being to an institutional account.
  • Applicants can apply from anywhere in the world.
  • Early career researchers are eligible to apply for up to 10 years after their PhD.
