  • 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 change'.


    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.
