2015 Call for applications for the OWSD Postgraduate Fellowships

Every year OWSD offers talented women scientists from developing countries the opportunity of a lifetime - the chance to study for a PhD in a science subject at an excellent research institute in a developing country other than their own.

Candidates can choose between the full-time option (3 years) at a host institute, or the sandwich option which allows them to enroll for a PhD in their home country and undertake a research visit of at least 6 months in a laboratory or institute abroad.

Please note that to be eligible applicants must obtain preliminary acceptance from at least one of their chosen host institutes.

In partnership with the host institute, the fellowship covers travel to the host country, tuition fees, board , accommodation  and living expenses of successful applicants while in the host country. Successful applicants will also receive USD 5,000 to attend international conferences or undertake short research visits, and the possibility of attending a regional workshop in career development.

See www.owsd.net for more information (on the application procedure, eligibility criteria and to download the application form).

Deadline for submission of applications is 31 July 2015.All enquiries should be addressed to: fellowships@owsd.net
