Dorcas Muthoni PhD Fellowships for African Female Students

The Dorcas Muthoni PhD fellowship offered and taken at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) in Spain, seeks doctoral applications from talented African female students.

About the Award: Dorcas Muthoni, a Kenyan engineer and entrepreneur, CEO and founder of the company Openworld, received our University’s highest recognition on 15th December 2017 for her significant work in the promotion of engineering studies among young women in Africa, the mentoring of young people, and her social commitment in the fight against poverty.

This new scholarship is aligned with the university’s institutional commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in order to contribute to transform our world.

The main objectives of this new fellowship are:

(i) To promote gender equality & contribute to reduce the gender gap in Information and Communication Technology – ICT; by facilitating more women pursuing scientific/technological/engineering careers and lowering the barriers women face when pursuing careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines.

(ii) To share excellent research with African female researchers during their PhD Studies. Our ICT department (DTIC) consists of more than 20 research groups who are very active in international research projects (i.e. currently active in 32 H2020 research projects, 9 of which are European Research Council grants) and nationally we have the Spanish research excellence seal Maria de Maeztu).

(iii) To contribute to future social impact in African countries.

The applicants are expected to return to their home countries after completion of their PhD studies, and to pursue a career related to ICT.

The Dorcas Muthoni PhD Fellowship will be part of the Doctoral programme in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), that covers many of the most important research topics in the information society grouped into four main areas:

cognitive and intelligent systems, audiovisual technologies, networks and communications, and computational biology and biomedical systems.

Cognition, Computation and Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Theoretical Computer Science, Natural Language Processing,
