Faculty for the Future

Launched in 2004, The Faculty for the Future program provides funding for women from emerging economies to pursue PhD and postdoctoral studies in STEM fields at the leading universities abroad.

The program’s long-term goal is to generate conditions that result in more women pursuing scientific careers by removing the barriers women face when entering STEM disciplines, thus reducing the gender gap. Faculty for the Future Fellows are expected to return to their home countries after completion of their studies to contribute to economic, social and technological advancement by strengthening the STEM teaching and research faculties of their home institutions, and to pursue positions in the public sector where their newly acquired technical and scientific skills can help provide evidence-based support for STEM policy making. In so doing, they become powerful role models and help to inspire other girls and women to pursue scientific careers.
