OWSD Fellowship for Early Career Women Scientists, Aug 2018
Closing date: 31 August 2018
In partnership with UNESCO’s Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD), IDRC is pleased to announce that the first call for applications for the new Early Career Women Scientists (ECWS) fellowships is now open.
Fellowships with a value of up to US$50,000 each will be awarded to women scientists from countries where the capacity for science and technology is lagging; who have completed their PhD in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics; and employed at an academic or scientific research institute in one of the eligible countries.
ECWS fellows will be supported for two years to continue their research at an international level while based at their home institutes; to build up research groups that will attract international visitors; and to develop links with industry.
The ECWS fellowships are funded by IDRC. UNESCO’s Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World is jointly funded by IDRC and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
This short video (in English only) explains the fellowship and how it will benefit women scientists starting their careers.
The deadline for applications is August 31, 2018.
