UNESCO is inviting applications for MAB awards for young researchers carrying out interdisciplinary research in ecosystems, natural resources and biodiversity. Applicants from developing countries are encouraged to apply.

The objectives of the MAB Young Scientists Award Scheme are to encourage young scientists, in particular those from developing countries, to use MAB research, project sites and biosphere reserves in their research; encourage young scientists who already use such sites to undertake comparative studies in other sites in or outside their own country.

The aim of the UNESCO is to examine the impact of the division between further and higher education on strategies to widen participation in undergraduate education.

Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.
