The aim of the IPCC Scholarship Programme is to build capacity in the understanding and management of climate change in developing countries by providing
opportunities for young scientists from developing countries to undertake doctoral studies.
Applications submitted by students from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are given priority.

- IPCC Secretariat (Scholarship Programme) receives and screens all applications for eligibility and assigns them to appropriate experts according to the fields of study
- IPCC Scientific Experts review the applications and proposals and make their recommendations
IPCC Science Board, comprising the Chair and the three Vice-Chairs of the IPCC, assesses the applications and the proposals and makes a shortlist of candidates.
The funding partners (Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Cuomo Foundation) along with the IPCC Science Board make the final selection of students to receive the awards.
On 9 December 2007, the IPCC was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for its 'efforts to build up and disseminate greater
knowledge about man-made climate change and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such
The award of the Nobel Peace Prize recognized the importance of addressing the implications
of climate change on stability and human security.
The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established with the funds received from the 2007 Nobel
Peace Prize award to the IPCC. The first funding partner of the Programme was Gro Harlem
Brundtland, former Norwegian Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change. Dr Brundtland
made her donation from the Tallberg Leadership Award, which she received in June 2009.
