How does OWSD help in building my career as an aspiring female scientist?

OWSD programmes are designed to support women scientists from developing countries. You may be just starting out on a scientific career and would like to meet or contact other women in your field (OWSD Members), or you might be thinking of doing a PhD but you don't have the funds (OWSD PhD Fellowships). Perhaps you already have a PhD and are now a lecturer in your department but need funding for your research (Early Career Women Scientists Fellowship). Or perhaps you have built a strong research career but need some international recognition for the great work you do (OWSD Awards). OWSD has a programme or activity at each stage of your career.

How does OWSD pool resources to provide other opportunities?

OWSD links up with like-minded organizations, institutes such as TWAS (TWAS PhD Fellowships, TWAS Postdoctoral Fellowships, TWAS Scientific Meetings, TWAS Prizes and Awards, TWAS Associate Programs, TWAS Fellowship for research and Advanced Training) to pool resources, and provide extra opportunities.
