InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

As part of InterRidge’s mission to promote international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary studies of oceanic spreading centers, we invite proposals for InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowships of up to $5000 US each. These fellowships are designed to encourage international collaboration on any aspect of ridge-crest science by graduate students or postdoctoral researchers, fostering long-standing partnerships for their future careers. The fellowships can be used for international cruise participation, international laboratory use, and adding an international dimension to the Fellow’s research. We expect to offer a number of Fellowships each year. Fellowships funded by InterRidge are open to graduate students or postdocs from any nation.

Amount and Duration of Fellowship

The amount awarded to each successful applicant is determined based on the project needs and is up to 5000 US$ per Fellowship. The Fellowship must be used within 1 year from the date the Fellowship is awarded.
