The fellowships are open to qualified young women science graduates (generally below 40 years of age) from countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and/or LDCs. The minimum qualification of applicants is an M.Sc. degree (or equivalent), or an outstanding B.Sc. honours degree, in the natural sciences. Important: Following recent discussions with donors, earlier restrictions that limited eligible research projects to those in the basic sciences have been dropped. Therefore, applications can now be accepted from female scientists in all branches of the natural sciences. Applicants already on site in the host country will not be considered eligible. The host institute where the applicant wishes to pursue her doctorate degree must be in a developing country other than her own. The applicant must be willing to return to her own country after completion of the fellowship.
Scholarship Deadline: 31 July 2012
