Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Fellowships 2021/2022 for Women in STEM

Deadline: November 9th, 2020

Details: The Faculty for the Future program, launched in 2004, awards fellowships to women from developing and emerging countries to pursue PhD or Post-doctoral research in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields at leading universities worldwide.

The program’s long-term goal is to accelerate gender equality in STEM by generating conditions that result in more women pursuing scientific careers through alleviating some of the barriers they encounter when enrolling in STEM disciplines. The program is committed to gender parity in science and recognizes that full access to and participation in a STEM curriculum is essential for the empowerment of women and girls. By accelerating gender equality in STEM, the talent and capacities of these women can be developed for the benefit of their local communities, regions, and nations.

Since its launch in 2004, 739 women from 82 countries have received Faculty for the Future fellowships to pursue Ph.D. and Post-doctoral research in STEM in leading universities outside of their home country.

Benefits:

  • Faculty for the Future grants are based on actual costs for eligible expenses up to a maximum of USD 50,000 per year for a Ph.D. and a maximum of USD 40,000 per year for a Post-doc and may be renewed through to completion of studies.
  • Renewal grants are subject to performance, recommendations from supervisors, and strong evidence of re-integration plans in the home country.

Requirements:

  • Candidates should have applied to, have been admitted to, or be currently enrolled in a university abroad when submitting their grant application.
  • Candidates must hold an excellent academic record, demonstrate leadership skills, community outreach activities, and have a track record in encouraging girls and women into STEM fields.
  • Candidates should also prove their commitment to return to their home countries upon completion of their studies to contribute to the economic, social, and technological advancement of their home regions by strengthening the STEM teaching and research faculties
    of their home institutions as well as through their leadership in science-based entrepreneurship.
  • They are also expected to contribute to the public sector where their newly acquired technical and scientific skills can help provide evidence-based support for STEM policymaking, including topics of gender representation.
