This will be awarded for the first time at the biennial Challenger Society Meeting in Newcastle and is to be awarded to an early career-stage marine scientist who is carrying out research in the field of Nutrients and Nutrient Cycling in the Oceans.
This £2000 Fellowship is made possible by a generous gift from Society Honorary Life Member, Malcolm Woodward. The Fellowship will be awarded on a biennial basis to an eligible scientist who is a member of the Challenger Society for their achievements and promise.
The bursary will provide support for the Fellow to attend conferences/workshops, travel for fieldwork, and carry out activities aligned to the objectives of the Society for a period of up to 2 years following award.
- Nominations for the Fellowship are sought for outstanding early career researchers, quoting their contribution to the field and evidencing their potential as a future leader in marine science.

The letters of support should be included with the submission of the proposal along with a short CV of the nominee.
