OWSD Postgraduate Training Fellowship
Global Young Academy has sent the call of an excellent opportunity from Organization for Women in Science (OWSD) for talented young female scientist from developing countries to apply for OWSD Postgraduate Training Fellowship. If you know any possible candidates in your network, please let them know about this opportunity.
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 applicants who have already contacted a host supervisor who is willing to work with them will be evaluated very positively.
The fellowship covers travel to the host country, tuition fees and living expenses of successful applicants while at the host institute.
See http://owsdw.ictp.it/activities/postgraduate-training-fellowships for more information on the application procedure, eligibility criteria and to download the application form.
Extended deadline for submission of applications is 25 August 2014.
