The Sixth Round of Awards of the United Nations Intergovernmental Programme on Climate Chnage (IPCC) Scholarship Programme is on now and Professor Oliver Ruppel was again nominated as distinguished Expert Reviewer. The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established with the funds received from the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize award to the IPCC. Expert Reviewers review the applications and make their recommendations to the IPCC Scholarship Programme Science Board, which comprises the IPCC Chair and the three Vice-Chairs. The IPCC Scholarship Programme was established to build capacity in the understanding and management of climate change in developing countries by providing opportunities for young scientists to undertake studies that would not be possible without the support of the Scholarship Fund, which is generously supported by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the Cuomo Foundation.
