Description

The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future program, launched in 2004, awards fellowships to women from developing and emerging economies to pursue PhD or post-doctoral studies in the physical sciences*, engineering and technology at leading universities abroad*.

The long-term goal of the Faculty for the Future program is to generate conditions that result in more women pursuing academic careers in scientific disciplines thus contributing to the socio-economic development of their home countries and regions.

The Faculty for the Future program is growing each year and has become a powerful community of 257 women scientists from 62 countries. Grant recipients are selected as much for their leadership capabilities as for their scientific talents. Ultimately they are expected to return to their home countries to continue their academic careers, to further their research, to teach and to become inspirational role models for other young women. 

Faculty for the Future grants are based on actual costs up to a maximum of USD 50,000 per year and may be renewed through to completion of studies subject to performance, self-evaluation, and recommendations from supervisors.

Eligible African Countries 

Any African country

Field of Research

Physical sciences*, engineering and technology

Eligibility

Applicants must have a first-class or high upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in a relevant discipline and meet the University's standard English language entry requirements.

 

These studentships are open to suitable UK/EU and International (i.e., outside the EU) applicants. Please note though that the awards cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate only. International applicants (and those not eligible to pay UK/EU tuition fees) must demonstrate at the time of their application that they can fund the difference in tuition fee rates.

These studentships are for full-time study only and applicants must be able to commence their studies in October 2012.

Application Procedure

Candidates should have applied to, have been admitted to, or be currently enrolled in a university abroad* when submitting their Faculty for the Future grant application. Candidates must hold an excellent academic record and be able to evidence their commitment to teaching, research or using science in public policy advocacy. Candidates should demonstrate leadership skills and have a track record in encouraging young women into the sciences. 

* Related disciplines may also be awarded. For example, awards in biological sciences are limited to interdisciplinary research between physical and biological sciences.

*In a developed country.

I'm wondering why most scholarships are for beneficiaries to study from where the funds come from. To reduce on costs why dont you provide scholarships for students to study from their local/home universities? Some are to young to start life a lone in a foreign land; and they are dropping out because parents can't afford.
