 2018ECORD SUMMER SCHOOLS
 
The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) will sponsor 10  to 15 Scholarships  to allow outstanding young scientists to attend one of the three 2018 ECORD Summer Schools  in Urbino (Italy), Bremen (Germany) or Leicester (UK). The Scholarships will contribute to costs of registration, travel, subsistence and/or accommodation at the Schools.

The ECORD Scholarships are open to young scientists based in ECORD countries (see http://www.ecord.org/about-ecord/about-us/  for a list of ECORD countries). 

Preference will be given to PhD students or early career post-doctoral research scientists. The review of the applications will be made by ESSAC, the ECORD Science Committee, and the decisions will be communicated by the end May 2018.
 
The deadline to apply for an ECORD Scholarship  is 30 April 2018. 
 
Applications should be sent to the ESSAC Office (essac@plymouth.ac.uk) and should include a detailed Letter of Interest (max. two pages), a CV and a Letter of Support from one supervisor. Please download and use the templates for the CV and Letter of

Support from our website:
http://www.ecord.org/education/scholarship/
 
No other attachments will be accepted. The most important document of the package is the Letter of Interest, which should outline the motivation for your application and summarise how attendance at the summer school will be beneficial for your future scientific career. Application for an ECORD Scholarship is independent of the application and registration process to an ECORD Summer School.  Please be aware that application and registration for the ECORD Summer Schools must be made directly through the respective Summer School organisers  (see contact links below), not through the ESSAC office.
