Role models for the next generation

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, engineering, or related disciplines to pursue advanced graduate study at top universities in their disciplines abroad.

Launched by the Schlumberger Foundation in 2004, Faculty for the Future has grown to become a community of 142 women from 43 countries.

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 in the range of USD 25,000 to 50,000 per year-maximum USD 40,000 for postdoctoral studies- and may be renewed through to completion of studies subject to performance, self-evaluation, and recommendations from supervisors. The amount of the grant depends on the actual costs of studying and living in the chosen location.

Eligibility criteria and application process instructions can be found at New Grant Application Process or Renewal Grant Application Process.

Faculty for the Future Community

Faculty for the Future has extended its mission to community building over the past few years. An online forum provides a popular venue for daily interaction among the 142 Fellows.

In addition, every 18 to 24 months approximately 40 fellows meet face to face in an informal conference setting that provides an opportunity to interact, share research and life experiences, advance topics about the relationships between gender, science and socio-economic development and, importantly, to become friends and offer each other moral support. In addition to the biannual forums, informal gatherings also take place.
