Faculty for the Future Fellowships are awarded to women from developing and emerging economies to pursue PhDs or Post-Doctorates at leading universities abroad. Ultimately the key objective of the program is that these women return to their home countries to continue their research/teaching and/or become advocates for public policy in their domain of expertise, laying the ground for change in their home region.
The Foundation is searching for the following profiles:
– Women from developing and emerging economies;
– Pursuing studies in physical sciences or engineering and technology (with a few awards in related disciplines) at PhD and Post-doc level;
– Only students who have applied to, have been admitted to, or are currently enrolled in a university abroad to pursue a PhD or a Post-doctoral course can apply for a Faculty for the Future grant;
– Willing to contribute to the socio-economic development of their home countries and regions by strengthening the faculties in their home universities, pursuing relevant research, and/or using their specific expertise to address policy issues.
