Application Deadline: November 11, 2022
The Schlumberger Foundation’s ongoing dedication to creating a network of highly accomplished role models who can close the gender gap in STEM fields by encouraging more women to pursue research is demonstrated by this latest round of awards. Fellowships are given out in accordance with an applicant’s academic prowess, leadership traits, and participation in STEM outreach initiatives in underserved communities back home. With assistance from the Foundation, Fellows have consistently excelled in the classroom despite significant cultural, geopolitical, environmental, or economic obstacles.

The initiative provides fellowships for cutting-edge STEM research at prestigious research institutions abroad. After completing their studies, Faculty for the Future Fellows are expected to return to their home nations and advance the economic, social, and technological development of those areas by enhancing the STEM teaching and research faculties at their home institutions and by exercising leadership in the field of science-based entrepreneurship. They are also expected to contribute to the public sector, where their newly acquired technical and scientific knowledge can help provide fact-based justification for decisions about gender representation in STEM.
807 women from 86 different countries have won Faculty for the Future grants since the program’s inception in 2004 for PhD and post-doctoral STEM research programs.
The program offers a platform for these women to work together to identify and remove barriers that are preventing equal opportunities in STEM education and professions in their local communities and home countries through interactive online tools and in-person meetings.
- When submitting their grant request, candidates must have applied to, been accepted to, or be enrolled in an international university. Candidates must have a strong academic record, exhibit leadership qualities, engage in community engagement initiatives, and have a history of promoting women and girls entering STEM areas.
- Additionally, candidates must demonstrate their intention to complete their education in their home countries and return there to advance the economic, social, and technological development of their home nations by enhancing the STEM teaching and research faculties at their home institutions and by taking the lead in science-based entrepreneurship.
- They are also expected to contribute to the public sector, where their newly acquired technical and scientific knowledge can help provide fact-based justification for decisions about gender representation in STEM.
