Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future Grant for Women in Science 2015/2016

Sep 2, 2015, 11:22 AM
The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future program supports outstanding women from developing countries in their pursuit of advanced graduate studies in STEM at leading universities worldwide.

The program also has an extended mission to encourage community building through in-person forums, with the objective to create an international community of women leaders who will support scientific development and act as change agents in their home countries.


Fellowships are awarded to women from developing and emerging economies to pursue PhDs or post-doctorate degrees at top universities abroad. Applicants are chosen via a rigorous selection process based on academic performance, outstanding references, research relevance, and commitment to teaching as well as the ability to be a change agent and inspire other young women into STEM pursuits.

The United Nations notes that women pursuing tertiary education are significantly underrepresented in the fields of science and engineering. A key objective of the Faculty for the Future program is that Fellows return to their home countries to continue their research and teaching, in turn becoming advocates for public policy in their scientific domain of expertise and laying the groundwork for change in regard to women in STEM in their home region.



Eligibility Criteria for Grants
To be eligible to apply for this Fellowship applicants must meet the following criteria:
You:
  • are a female and are a citizen of a developing country or emerging economy*. You are not eligible to apply if you hold dual citizenship of which one is citizenship of a developed country. (N.B. If you have been awarded a Faculty for the Future grant and after the award you obtain citizenship of a developed country, the grant will be discontinued as of the date of such additional citizenship);
  • are preparing for a PhD degree or post-doctoral research in the physical sciences, engineering, technology and related disciplines. Awards in biological sciences are limited to interdisciplinary research between physical and biological sciences. The Faculty for the Future program does not fund Master level studies;
  • are enrolled, admitted or have applied to a host university/research institute abroad (applications are no longer accepted where a candidate has not yet applied to a university). If you are applying for a sandwich course the final degree must be awarded by the Host University abroad (i.e., not from the home country university);
  • hold an excellent academic record;
  • have a proven track record of teaching experience or can demonstrate commitment to teaching;
  • can demonstrate active participation in faculty life and outreach programs to encourage young women into the sciences;
  • are willing to contribute to the socio-economic development of your home country and region by strengthening the faculties in your home university, pursuing relevant research, or using your specific expertise to address public policy matters.
If you do not meet the above criteria, please DO NOT apply for a grant, as your application will not be retained in the selection process.

*Faculty for the Future focuses on developing and emerging countries. Qualifying a country as advanced, developing or emerging, is a complex and often controversial topic.

Faculty for the Future does not draw on one single source or list but constitutes its eligible country list from a number of sources which allows incorporation of development status with regard to science, gender and education for example.

The most significant source drawn upon is the UN Human Development Index (HDI) including their Gender Development and Gender Empowerment Indexes as well as indicators of adult educational levels. Developing countries are defined as countries scoring medium or low in the UN HDI.

Applications from emerging countries (i.e., countries scoring high in the HDI) may occasionally be awarded grants if the given country scores low in the UN Gender Inequality Index.

The Faculty for the Future country list is reviewed every year and as levels of development fluctuate, a country may be on the list one year and not on the list the following year, and vice versa.
