Maombi Tarehe ya mwisho:30 Mei 2019.

The OWSD PhD Fellowship programme is administered with funds generously provided by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and is offered in partnership with host institutes throughout the developing world.

The general purpose of the fellowship programme is to contribute to the emergence of a new generation of women leaders in science and technology, and to promote their effective participation in the scientific and technological development of their countries.

Malengo maalum ya programu ya ushirika ni:

  • To improve access to educational and training opportunities in science and technology for young and talented women graduates from STLCs.
  • Ili kuongeza uzalishaji wa kisayansi na ubunifu wa wanasayansi wanawake katika STLCs.
  • Kuwawezesha kizazi kipya cha wanawake wenye vipaji kuchukua nafasi ya uongozi katika sayansi na teknolojia.
  • Kuhimiza wanawake wanasayansi kuchangia maendeleo endelevu ya nchi zao za nyumbani.
  • Kuwawezesha mwanasayansi mwanamke kutoka Kusini kushiriki na kuunganisha ngazi ya kikanda na kimataifa.
