OWSD Early Career Fellowship

The OWSD Early Career Fellowship programme is administered by OWSD with funds generously provided by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Canada. This programme supports early career women scientists to lead important research projects in those countries which have been identified as especially lacking in scientific and technological resources. The fellows will undertake their research projects in one of the eligible countries and applicants must demonstrate that they have spent significant periods of time in that country (at least 5 years in total). Applicants must also have a guarantee of employment at the institution where they intend to carry out the research.

During the 2-year fellowship, fellows will build on their leadership and management skills, develop connections with a variety of public and private sector partners to potentially convert their research into marketable products or guarantee its impact on a broader scale.

Please note: Research project proposals from other fields (social science, education, etc.) are not eligible and will not be taken into consideration.

The OWSD Early Career Fellowship is for two years and provides up to USD 50,000, but it does not provide for the fellow’s salary which must be guaranteed by the fellow’s institution.

The fellow’s institution must waive any overhead or indirect costs on the research project. However, applicants can include in their budget break-down any costs for support from the institution that will directly benefit the research project (for example, lab technician’s time, maintenance and utilities costs, administrative officer’s time, etc.). Eligible expenses are Research-related costs (Equipment, Consumables, Research visits, exchanges and programmes, Teaching and Assistance, Field work, Publication costs, Information resources, IT facilities, Training and other costs); Linking with industry and other partners; Outreach, communication and networking.
