Description

On 9 December 2007, the IPCC was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its ‘efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change’.

The award of the Nobel Peace Prize recognized the importance of addressing the implications of climate change on stability and human security.

The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established with the funds received from the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize award to the IPCC.

The first funding partner of the Programme was Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Norwegian Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change. Dr Brundtland made her donation from the Tallberg Leadership Award, which she received in June 2009.

The aim of the IPCC Scholarship Programme is to build capacity in the understanding and management of climate change in developing countries by providing opportunities for young scientists from developing countries to undertake doctoral studies.

Applications submitted by students from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are given priority.
