Schlumberger Foundation Faculty
2 April 2012
Dr. Nida Ambreen, a postdoctoral fellow from Pakistan, has won one of the prestigious Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future fellowships to work with Prof. Thomas Wirth.
The Schlumberger Foundation Faculty for the Future fellowships are awarded to women academics in science and engineering from developing and emerging countries, and provide funding for advanced graduate study at top universities abroad. The long-term goal of the Faculty for the Future program is to generate conditions that result in more young women pursuing scientific disciplines. Grant recipients are therefore selected as much for their leadership capabilities as their scientific talents and they are expected to return to their home countries to continue their academic careers and inspire other young women. Launched by the Schlumberger Foundation in 2004, Faculty for the Future has grown to become a community of 257 women from 62 countries. www.facultyforthefuture.net
