The Faculty for the Future program was launched by the Schlumberger Foundation in 2004 to award fellowships to women from developing economies. The fellowships fund PhD or post-doctoral studies in the physical sciences and related disciplines at top universities abroad.
Each year the program has grown steadily and today has become a powerful community standing at 194 pioneering women scientists from 54 countries.
Faculty for the Future fellowships are awarded to women from developing and emerging economies who are preparing for PhD or post-doctoral study in the physical sciences and related disciplines at top universities for their disciplines abroad.
Launched by the Schlumberger Foundation in 2004, the Faculty for the Future community now stands at 194 women from 54 countries, and grows steadily each year.
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.
Faculty for the Future grants are based on the actual costs of studying and living in the chosen location, and are capped at USD 50,000 for PhDs and USD 40,000 for Post-doctoral study. Grants may be renewed through to completion of studies subject to performance, self-evaluation and recommendations from supervisors.
