The purpose of the women in ocean science award (WIOSA) programme is:
- advancement of women in ocean sciences so they become world-leading professionals by establishing a network and providing mentorship, funding, and field access for a cohort of women in ocean science coming through the ranks to push the frontiers of science,
- enacted by granting 2 scholar awards and 4 intern awards per year for 6 years.
This will be a post-doctoral level researcher, looking to progress their career in the field of ocean sciences, preferably with a focus on coral resiliency. The scholar can promote a project via their own organization and/or may work in conjunction with an already running project at CCMI. This award is for 2 years (2022-2024) and the WIOSA Scholar will have full resources to establish a new field research experiment on the topic of coral reef/ocean resiliency over a two-year period, based at the Little Cayman Research Centre. A $10,000 USD financial fellowship award will be granted to the scholar, per annum. A further $10,000 USD per annum will be awarded to support a full month of field research activity (diving, boat, transportation, room and board, equipment) at the Little Cayman Research Station as well as participation in a relevant international scientific conference. The scholar will have the ability to select one intern (see below), via a fair and transparent process. International applications are welcome.
