UNESCO MAB Young Scientists Award 2024

Go Back


Are you an enthusiastic under-35 person carrying your research in UNESCO Biosphere Reserves or potential sites? Does your work contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals? Do you know someone with this profile?

Until 15 May 2024, applications for the 2024 MAB Young Scientists Awards are open. Created in 1989, the grant sheds light on interdisciplinary research in line with UNESCO's Man and the Biosphere Programme carried out by young scientists. Since 2022, with the generous support from the Principality of Monaco, five additional annual fellowships are granted specifically to studies on marine, island and coastal issues in biosphere reserves, totalling a number of 11 awards.
