This will be awarded for the first time at the biennial Challenger Society Meeting in Newcastle and is to be awarded to an early career-stage marine scientist who is carrying out research in the field of Nutrients and Nutrient Cycling in the Oceans.
This £2000 Fellowship is made possible by a generous gift from Society Honorary Life Member, Malcolm Woodward. The Fellowship will be awarded on a biennial basis to an eligible scientist who is a member of the Challenger Society for their achievements and promise.
