Faculty for the Future Program invites applications from deserving women candidates from developing countries for award of fellowships

Launched by the Schlumberger Foundation in 2004, the Faculty for the Future program aims to support qualified and deserving women from developing countries by awarding them fellowships to continue their PhD or post-doctoral studies. The women who are awarded the fellowships can continue their study in the physical sciences and related disciplines at top universities abroad. After completion of their study, these women go back to their countries and contribute to the socio-economic development of their countries.
New Grant Application Process

If you are a Faculty for the Future Fellow who is in transition from a PhD to Post-doctoral research, please make sure you go through the New Grant application channel, and not the Renewal Grant application channel.


Applicants must meet all the following criteria:

        Be a woman

        Be a citizen of a developing country

        Wish to pursue a PhD degree or Post-doctoral research in the physical sciences or related disciplines

        Have applied to, have been admitted to, or are currently enrolled in a university abroad

        Wish to return to their home country to continue their academic career upon completion of their studies

        Be very committed to teaching and demonstrate active participation in faculty life and outreach work to encourage young women into the sciences

        Hold an excellent academic record

Selection Criteria

Successful application will have gone through four selection rounds, with the reviewers paying particular attention to the following criteria:

        Academic performance

        Quality of references

        Quality of host country university

        Level of commitment to return to home country

        Commitment to teaching

        Relevance of research to home country

        Commitment to inspiring young women into the sciences

Eligibility for Renewal Grant Application Process

Obtaining a Renewal grant is not automatic. Renewals are largely subject to performance, self-evaluation, and recommendations from your current supervisor (preferably host and home) as well as availability of funding. Strong evidence that other sources of funding have been explored should be indicated, especially if you have already received one renewal grant from Faculty for the Future.

The on-line system for application will be open from September 12, 2011 to November 30, 2011.
