The IPCC Scholarship Programme for Developing Countries 2010

The IPCC Scholarship Programme is targeting the most vulnerable regions of the world where the IPCC has identified gaps in knowledge in terms of climate change science and impacts. These comprise developing countries, and in particular Least Developed Countries and Small Island Developing States.

Therefore applications coming from scholars from these areas and addressing issues relevant to them will be given priority. The Scholarship provides for living expenses, and in some cases, for tuition fees as well.

Objective:
The Programme aims at developing the knowledge, skills and capacity of the scholars in order to address climate change impacts and sustainable development. Priorities include research on the impacts of climate change in the most vulnerable regions of the world and the potential for adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development.

Primary Goals are:

  • To create opportunities for young people from the most vulnerable regions to develop their knowledge, skills and capacity in order to address climate change impacts and sustainable development.
  • To fill gaps in knowledge in priority regions such as Sub-Saharan Africa, Small Island Developing States, and Asian mega-deltas.
  • To build capacity for adaptation and mitigation
  • To help facilitate their ability to plan for situation-specific solutions in key focus areas:

Agriculture and food security

Transport and human settlements

Energy and water resources

Extreme events and natural disasters

Health and human well-being

Proposals for the initial round of scholarships will focus on the following fields of study:

    Underlying science of climate change.

    Impacts of climate change on aquatic ecosystems, water availability, health and agriculture.

    Climate-related disaster management: institutional and organizational issues (this is of crucial importance in some of the most vulnerable societies).

    Climate modelling and assessment of impacts of climate change.

    Adaptation and Mitigation options for different sectors and assessment of socio-economic implications.

    Deadlines:

    • For this initial round of scholarships, applicants should complete the attached application file which comprises the application form and the corresponding attachments by July 31, 2010 at the latest.
    • The selection process is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2010.

    Eligibility Requirements:

    • Scholars should come from developing countries
    • Scholars should be younger than 40 years of age
    • Scholars should have completed a University Degree (the minimum requirement is a Bachelor degree)
