PACE encourages women to follow up their studies with a PhD. We are aware of the fact that our society cannot afford to ignore the expert knowledge and potential of talented young women scientists.
Since 2008, the Zonta Club Paderborn awards a yearly prize to women PACE doctoral students with outstanding results in scientific research.
The Zonta Club Paderborn, a member of Zonta International, is an independent network of women professionals, who are in executive positions or run their own business. The club aims at improving women’s positions in all social groups.
Taking into account that scientific research is only possible to a limited extent directly after the birth of a child, PACE prolongs the fellowship for up to six months.
Additionally, women researchers can join the mentoring program for women run by the University of Paderborn. You can read more in German here.
