Graduate Women International

The Graduate Women International lists a number of other Women Graduates' organisations throughout the world who offer funding for postgraduate research in a range of fields. These are divided as International Awards and National Awards. You will find there Fellowships & Grants opportunities and information on Hegg Hoffet Fund which assists graduate women who have been displaced as a result of war, political upheaval or other serious emergencies.

Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future PhD/Post-doc Scholarships

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.  

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.
