Abstract
The SCOR Visiting Scholar program was started in 2009, to send scientists to developing countries to provide mentoring and teaching using a cost-effective approach. The program was loosely based on similar programs of the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO). SCOR issues a call for applications in September/October of each year and the SCOR Committee on Capacity Building selects applicants each year to serve as Visiting Scholars, depending on funds available. In recent years, SCOR has been able to support six Visiting Scholars: three supported with funds from the U.S. National Science Foundation, two with funds from national SCOR committees, and one with funds from crowdfunding and from the budget of the SCOR Committee on Capacity Building (which also comes from national SCOR committees).
