Call for PIs to offer berths for new IR cruise bursaries

InterRidge continues support of cruise travel bursaries. These are to enable early career, ridge-crest scientists to participate in mid-ocean ridge research cruises. Up to $2000 USD will be awarded for travel and subsistence costs to facilitate embarkation and disembarkation.InterRidge is now inviting leaders of scheduled research cruises, with spare berths, to contact the InterRidge Office (, notifying us of availability, the nature of the research cruise and contact details. We will then compile these and advertise them on the IR website. Interested applicants will then be invited to contact the cruise leaders. If there is mutual agreement, there will then follow a one-page, joint application to InterRidge.Preference will be given to applicants from InterRidge member countries, who have a clear role on the research cruise and who are not part of the original research team. We especially favour applicants from countries other than those of the cruise leader.
