We’re offering three STEM fellowships to women with a passport and permanent resident of one of the eligible countries for East Asia: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam.
This year the British Council has awarded Aston University three Early Academic Fellowship Grants that are specifically designed for women who have recently been awarded their PhD (0-12 months postdoctoral and have not held a permanent academic post with a research element) and wish to have a research experience at a UK university or research institution, converting their doctoral work into publications or other academic outputs, and establishing new research relationships.
This scholarship programme aims to increase opportunities in STEM for women. According to data from the UN Scientific Education and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), fewer than 30 percent of researchers worldwide are women and only 30 percent of female students select STEM-related fields in higher education.
