Description

The Schlumberger Foundation is a nonprofit entity that supports science, engineering and technology education. Recognizing the link between science, engineering, technology, and socio-economic development, as well as the key role of education in realizing individual potential, The Schlumberger Foundation’s flagship program, is Faculty for the Future.

Faculty for the Future program, launched in 2004, awards fellowships to women from developing and emerging economies to pursue PhD or post-doctoral studies in the physical sciences, engineering and technology at leading universities abroad. The Faculty for the Future program is growing each year and has become a powerful community of 257 women scientists from 62 countries. The long-term goal of the Faculty for the Future program is to generate conditions that result in more women pursuing academic careers in scientific disciplines thus contributing to the socio-economic development of their home countries and regions. Ultimately they are expected to return to their home countries to continue their academic careers, to further their research, to teach and to become inspirational role models for other young women.

The Schlumberger Foundation is now accepting new applications for the 2015–2016 Faculty for the Future Fellowships.
