The fellowship program is open to 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. Its main purpose is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications. Priority is given to applicants in early stages of career development. This fellowship is intended to support training in oceanographic observations, not research techniques.
