Call for applications for the OWSD fellowships


The Call for Applications the OWSD postgraduate fellowships is open. Women from Sub-Saharan Africa or Least Developed Countries can apply for a PhD programme or for an MSc converting to a PhD programme.  Grantees can choose either a full-time three year fellowship option, where the research is undertaken entirely at the host institute, or a sandwich option, where applicants are registered as PhD students in their home country and spend a minimum of six months at a host institute abroad. We particularly encourage women to consider the sandwich option, which allows them to earn the PhD in their home country while accessing specialist researchers and equipment at the host institute.

Eligible scientific fields include: Agricultural Sciences; Structural, Cell and Molecular Biology; Biological Systems and Organisms; Medical and Health Sciences; Neurosciences; Chemical Sciences; Engineering Sciences; Information Technology; Astronomy, Space and Earth Sciences; Mathematical Sciences; Physics.
