This initiative has been running since 2008 and has proved to be a very successful training programme providing hands-on, sea-going experience to young scientists from developing countries, and the opportunity to be involved in an internationally renowned scientific programme. This fellowship programme is open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (PhD/MSc) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition. Applicants must be citizens of developing countries or economies in transition, as defined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD, for more information see the list of eligible countries attached below.
In 2017 this programme will be funded for the first time under the "POGO Working Groups and Training Initiative" grants. POGO member institutes can apply for these grants to deliver a training programme, please see here for more information.
