OBJECTIVES: The long-term goal of the Faculty for the Future program is to generate conditions that result in more women pursuing scientific disciplines. Grant recipients are therefore selected as much for their leadership capabilities as for their scientific talents, and they are expected to return to their home countries to continue their academic careers and inspire other young women.
To be eligible to apply for this fellowship, applicants must meet the following criteria: are a female and a citizen of a developing country or emerging economy (applicants are not eligible to apply if they hold dual citizenship of which one is citizenship of a developed country); are preparing for a PhD, or postdoctoral study in the physical sciences, engineering and related disciplines; are enrolled, admitted or have applied to a host university/research institute abroad (applications are no longer accepted where an individual has not yet applied to a university). If you are applying for a sandwich course, the final degree must be awarded by the University abroad (not from the home country university); hold an excellent academic record; can demonstrate active participation in faculty life and outreach programs to encourage young women into the sciences; and are willing to contribute to the socioeconomic development of their home country and region by strengthening the faculties in their home universities, pursuing relevant research, or using their specific expertise to address public policy matters.
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.
