Schlumberger Foundation Call for Applications for the 2020-2021 Faculty for the Future Fellowships

Call for Applications for the Schlumberger Foundation 2020-2021 Faculty for the Future Fellowships.

As of September 5th, 2019 the Schlumberger Foundation will receive online applications for the grant. The Foundation would be delighted if you could share this announcement with your network of potential women candidates, either by forwarding them the announcement, by posting it on your institution’s website, or any other channel you believe would reach potential applicants for the grant.

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) at leading universities worldwide.

The program’s long-term goal is to generate conditions that result in more women pursuing scientific careers by lowering the barriers women face when entering STEM disciplines, thus reducing the gender gap. Faculty for the Future Fellows are expected to return to their home countries after completion of their studies to contribute to economic, social and technological advancement by strengthening the STEM teaching and research faculties of their home institutions. They can also make contributions in the public sector where their newly acquired technical and scientific skills can help provide evidence-based support for STEM policy making. In so doing, they become powerful role models and help to inspire other girls and women to pursue scientific careers.

Thank you in advance for helping the Foundation to reach potential candidates and thus supporting women in STEM!
