OWSD fellowships: Call for applications

The 2015 call for applications for the OWSD postgraduate fellowships for women is open. Women from Sub-Saharan Africa and the Least Developed Countries are invited to apply by 31 July 2015.

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. OWSD particularly encourages women to consider the sandwich option, which allows them to earn their PhD degree 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.

Applications by students in the basic (or 'pure') sciences (such as mathematics, physics and chemistry) are encouraged.
