Applications are open for the 2022/23 Scholarship in Germany – Fully Funded. The scholarship is offered by Schlumberger Foundation for the Future Fellowships from September 8th to November 5th, 2021.
The Faculty for the Future program, launched in 2004, awards fellowships to women from developing and emerging economies to pursue PhD or Post-doctoral research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) elds at leading universities worldwide.
While all applications will be evaluated using the same criteria, applications would be particularly welcome from countries that are currently under-represented to enable a broad geographical spread which is an important factor in the overall mission of this grant program.
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 PhD and 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.
To be eligible to apply for this Fellowship applicants must meet the following criteria:
If you do not meet the above criteria, please do not apply for a grant, as your application will not be retained in the selection process.
*Faculty for the Future focuses on developing and emerging countries where women are underrepresented in STEM disciplines. Qualifying a country as advanced, developing or emerging, is a complex and often controversial topic.
Faculty for the Future does not draw on one single source or list but constitutes its eligible country list from a number of sources which allows incorporation of development status with regard to science, gender and education for example. The most significant sources drawn upon are the UN Human Development Index (HDI), the UN Gender Inequality Index (GII), the UNESCO institute of Statistics (UIS), Female and Education Ratio (FER) including indicators of female participation in STEM in tertiary education and the UIS STEM enrolment in Tertiary Education.
The Faculty for the Future country list is reviewed every year and as levels of development fluctuate, a country may be on the list one year and not on the list the following year, and vice versa.
