IPCC Scholarship Programme 2021 in Climate Change for PhD students from developing countries.

Application Deadline:28 March 2021 

The IPCC Scholarship Programme provides scholarships for PhD students from developing countries for research that advances the understanding of the scientific basis of risks of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.

 The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established with the funds received from the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize award to the IPCC. The first funding partner of the Programme was Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Norwegian Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change. Dr Brundtland made her donation from the Tallberg Leadership Award, which she received in June 2009.  

The Selection Process

The following describes the process through which scholarships are awarded, once a funding round is agreed:

  • The IPCC Secretariat receives and screens all applications for eligibility, and assigns them to Expert Reviewers (i.e. previous and current IPCC Coordinating Lead Authors, Lead Authors, Review Editors and Bureau Members).
  • The Expert Reviewers review the applications and proposals and make their recommendations to the IPCC Scholarship Programme Science Board, which comprises the IPCC Chair and the three Vice-Chairs. 
  • The IPCC Science Board assesses the recommendations and draws up a shortlist of the candidates that is submitted to the funding partners.
  • The funding partners make the final selection of students to receive the awards.
