The Trevor Platt Memorial Scholarship was established by the International Ocean Colour Coordinating Group (IOCCG) to honour the memory of Professor Trevor Platt (1942-2020), who was a brilliant scientist and a leader in interdisciplinary oceanographic research, with outstanding contributions in the fields of biological oceanography, theoretical ecology and the use of satellite ocean colour data for measuring ocean processes. He played an especially important role in the establishment of the IOCCG, being one of the founding members of the group, and serving as the first Chairman for a period of 10 years (from 1996-2006).
The prestigious IOCCG Trevor Platt Memorial Scholarship is aimed at providing students and early career scientists from developing countries and countries with economies in transition with the opportunity for gaining valuable training experience in the field of ocean and in-land water remote sensing and applications. The applicant must be a citizen of one of the listed eligible countries (according to SCOR), and must be residing in that country at the time of application.
Two scholarships will be awarded for the inaugural year, in 2023, at US$ 5,000 each.
Applications close on the 11 of November 2022.
