The International Ocean Institute (IOI) is once again offering the Elisabeth Mann Borgese Bursary (EMB Bursary) consisting of a sum of EUR 3,500 which may be used in furthering research studies over the period of a year.
The 2020-2021 Bursary will be awarded to one person/research team carrying out postgraduate studies/research in ocean/marine/maritime related studies at the University of Malta. Staff or students are to be registered with the University of Malta where research in the relevant fields is carried out.
The EMB Bursary was established by the International Ocean Institute as a means of demonstrating recognition to the host country of the IOI – Malta – for hosting the IOI Headquarters and providing facilities for staff and offices. The Bursary also constitutes a further recognition and acknowledgement of the role of Prof. E. Mann Borgese, founder of IOI, and of her considerable achievements; the Bursary is financed through the IOI.
