PAGES actively promotes the participation of early-career scientists and scientists from low- and middle-income countries in relevant working groups, workshops, and other activities.
As part of this effort PAGES launched two new mobility fellowships in 2021 to support early-career researchers in low- and middle-income countries:
- The PAGES Inter-Africa Mobility Research Fellowship Program for African early-career scientists
- The PAGES and Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI) International Mobility Research Fellowship Program for Latin American and Caribbean early-career scientists on past global changes
The fellowships grant support for scientists from African countries to conduct research in another research institution in Africa, not located in their home country and for Latin American and Caribbean scientists to conduct research in an institution in another Latin American country, not in their home country.
Awardees for both mobility research fellowships:
- are early-career scientists at the time of being awarded a fellowship – either PhD students in the final stage of completing their thesis, or postdoctoral researchers (usually within five years of completing their degree). Scientists who have not had the opportunity to conduct research abroad are strongly encouraged to apply;
- were citizens of African countries for the Inter-Africa Mobility Research Fellowship and from Latin American or Caribbean countries for the PAGES-IAI International Mobility Research Fellowship;
- conducted research related to PAGES' scope; and
- were willing to conduct research in different African or Latin American and Caribbean research institutions, not located in their home countries.
