Past Training Programmes


Visiting Professorship Programme

​Under this programme, POGO sponsored marine scientists of international standing to teach at marine institutions in the developing world for periods of up to three months. This exposed young scientists, particularly from developing countries, to the best oceanographers world-wide and facilitates the formation of professional contacts, invaluable in the development of their scientific careers. The program started in 2004 and ran until 2014.





Austral Summer Institutes

Until 2015, POGO contributed to funding the Austral Summer Institutes (ASI), a series of lectures which took place at the University of Concepcion in Chile around December-January from 2007 to 2015.



UCT Postgraduate Bursary

From 2009 to 2015, POGO offered a Postgraduate Bursary each year to one student from Africa to study for a Masters in Applied Marine Science at the University of Cape Town.
