The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
OWSD PhD Fellowships, 2020
Deadline for applications: 31 May 2020
The Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) Fellowship is offered to women scientists from Science and Technology Lagging Countries (STLCs)to undertake PhD research in the Natural, Engineering and Information Technology sciences at a host institute in the South.
Candidates can choose between two study schemes:
a full-time fellowship (maximum 4 years funding), where the research is undertaken entirely at a host institute in another developing country in the South.
a sandwich fellowship, where the candidate must be a registered PhD student in her home country and undertakes part of her studies at a host institute in another developing country.
The sandwich fellowship is awarded for a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 research visits at the host institute. The minimum duration of the first visit is 6 months. The total number of months spent at the host institute cannot exceed 20 months. The funding period cannot exceed 4 years.
OWSD particularly encourages candidates to consider the sandwich option, which allows them to earn the PhD in their home country while accessing specialist researchers and equipment abroad, at the host institute.
The fellowship support is only provided while the student is on site, at the host institute.
