BioE PhD student Nadia Ayad has been awarded a 2018-19 Faculty for the Future fellowship. The Schlumberger Foundation selected the most recent Faculty for the Future women in STEM from emerging and developing countries engaged in post-graduate studies at various universities around the world.

The fellowships represent the Schlumberger Foundation’s long term investment in a community of highly qualified and recognized role models
who are contributing to narrowing the gender gap in STEM disciplines by inspiring more women to study science. Fellowships are awarded
based on the applicant’s academic ability, leadership qualities and engagement in outreach activities towards underserved communities with
STEM as a development instrument in their home countries. Fellowship recipients have all achieved academic excellence throughout their
studies, often despite considerable challenges and traditional barriers to education
