Schlumberger Faculty for the Future
Women in science and technology Faculty for the Future is a strategic
partnership with the education sector in emerging economies to encourage
women in their pursuit of academic careers in science and technology.
Building on our worldwide network of university relationships, this program
provides funding for advanced graduate study. The long-term goal is to
support role models and improve gender balance at the faculty level so that
more young women are attracted into scientific disciplines.
Grant recipients in the Faculty for the Future program are expected to
return to their home countries to continue their academic careers.
