Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early-Career Women Scientists in the Developing World, a high-profile honor for scientific and career achievements by women from developing countries in five regions: Latin America and the Caribbean, the Arab region, Sub-Saharan Africa, Central and South Asia, and East and South-East Asia and the Pacific.
The awards are sponsored and organized by The Elsevier Foundation, the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World(OWSD) and The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS).
The competition will be judged by a distinguished panel of international scientists; one winner from each region will be announced in February 2017 at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Boston.
The Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early-Career Women Scientists rotate annually between disciplines (biological sciences, engineering sciences, and physical sciences) to make sure optimal exposure and networking synergies. Previous winners say the awards have had a powerful impact, enhancing the visibility of their research and creating new opportunities for the future.
- The five winners will each receive a cash prize of US$5,000 and all-expenses paid attendance at the AAAS meeting.
- The winners will also receive one-year access to Elsevier’s ScienceDirect and Scopus.
Nominations for the 2017 awards will be accepted for early-career women scientists working in engineering who have received their PhDs within the past 10 years and live in one of the81 scientifically lagging countries as defined by TWAS.
