Scott Polar Research Institute Centenary Campaign

Scott Polar Research Institute Centenary Campaign

  • Scott Polar Centenary logo

As a supporter of the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) centenary campaign, you will inspire and support the next generation through funding for fieldwork, student bursaries and the conservation of our Polar Museum collections and Archives.

You will increase our capacity for research through the funding of new research posts in polar environmental sciences and polar social sciences, enabling us to analyse and communicate the issues facing today’s global society. Finally, you will help us to expand and improve the research and teaching facilities provided at the institute, providing the best possible working environment and resources for future generations of polar researchers here at SPRI. We are looking forward to the future of the Scott Polar Research Institute, but we won’t be able to face the challenges ahead of us alone. By supporting us and the SPRI centenary campaign, you can secure the future of polar research and heritage for the next 100 years.
