Please read the guidelines below before submitting the application (the form is below).

- This PAGES support is specifically dedicated to data stewardship and may not be used for other purposes. For instance, analyzing or interpreting the data cannot be the main purpose of the DSS.
- Only current PAGES-supported working groups (WGs) and those that have sunset within the last 2 years can apply for this support.
- Funds will be allocated as a stipend from PAGES to the data steward.
- The WG annual report must include a detailed update on the data stewardship activity.
- All products resulting from the data stewardship stipend must acknowledge PAGES.
- An electronic copy of all products, or any partially completed products, should be emailed to the PAGES IPO.
- Proposals must be submitted online. The call for proposals will be announced once per year and a maximum of one proposal per working group, per 3-year-phase, will be funded.
- You must contact your PAGES Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) liaison to discuss your plans at least two weeks before submitting your proposal.
- The call has the same deadline as the call for workshop financial support and new working groups.
- A maximum annual support of US$15,000 can be allocated to each working group. The funding requested must be proportional to the work planned, and needs to be justified in the proposal.
