Propose a PWF Project


The PWF call for project proposals for 2022 is now closed.

If you are interested in organising/volunteering for a project please do email us!

Before you get in touch please read About PWF to learn about our mission and activities!

PWF opens an annual call for scientists to apply to work with us. The application process has two stages, as outlined in more detail in the Guidelines.

  1. Open Call for Applications: Anyone can apply to volunteer, even without a full idea for a project! We would just ask for the applicants motivation and goals, and the issues they would like to address. PWF will then select key projects to work with to the second stage, and develop a project with them.
  2. Project proposal: The selected applicants will work with PWF to put together the detailed proposal including budget. This is then sent for approval by PWF and other partners including participating universities.

Who can apply?

Who are the volunteer scientists?

- A lecturer or teacher at a university in a developing country applying to organise a project for their own students in their university, region or country or they may be applying to work with another university or another country.

- A graduate student, postdoc or lecturer from a developing country working abroad, applying to organise a project in their own or another developing country.

- Other international scientists and ICTP scientist may also join the project as a volunteer scientist.

We are always very eager to hear from scientists from countries in conflict and projects to support diversity, in particular women and girls.
