Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Fellowships 2023/2024 for Women in STEM. (USD 50,000 per year grant)

Application Deadline: November 11, 2022
The Schlumberger Foundation announces its Faculty for the Future fellowship award recipients for women from developing and emerging economies to pursue post-graduate studies in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines at leading research institutes around the world.
This new round of awards demonstrates the Schlumberger Foundation’s long-term commitment towards building a community of highly qualified role models who can help narrow the gender gap in STEM disciplines by inspiring more women to study science. Fellowships are awarded based upon an applicant’s academic ability, leadership qualities and engagement in STEM outreach activities in under-served communities in their home countries. With support from the Foundation, Fellows have achieved academic excellence throughout their studies, often despite considerable cultural, geopolitical, environmental or economic challenges.
The program awards fellowships for advanced research in STEM at leading research institutes abroad. Faculty for the Future Fellows are expected 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 policy making, including topics of gender representation.
Since its launch in 2004, 807 women from 86 countries have received Faculty for the Future fellowships for PhD and Post-Doctorate STEM research programs. Through interactive online tools and in-person meetings, the program provides a platform for these women to take joint action in identifying and unravelling the impediments that are holding back equal opportunities in STEM education and careers in their local communities and home countries.
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 policy making, including topics of gender representation.
