- Application form (Word-file)
[bilde1]The Tinker Foundation was created in 1959 by Dr. Edward Larocque Tinker. His lifelong interest in the Iberian tradition in the Old and New Worlds directed the Foundation's overall focus on Latin America, Spain and Portugal. More recently the Foundation has included in its mandate the support of projects concerning Antarctica, a region of significant interest on an international scale.
SCAR, the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, is a committee of ICSU , the International Council for Science, and it is charged with the initiation, promotion and co-ordination of scientific research in Antarctica. SCAR also provides international, independent scientific advice to the Antarctic Treaty system.
Applications are sought from South American researchers for travelling to and attending the meeting.
Travel grants will provide partial or full support for travel and related expenses (including the registration fee) to attend the Oslo IPY Conference. The grants will be provided by the Tinker Foundation and are administered by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research. To make the grant apply to as many as possible, it has been agreed that participants supported from this grant shall be registered at Early Bird registration rate.
Applicants must be Citizen and current residents of a South American Country. Successful applicants must have had an abstract (either poster or oral presentation) accepted.
