The FINCyT Science and Technology Program’s Scholarships for Doctoral Studies Abroad seeks to train individuals from Peruvian universities and research centers in doctoral programs outside Peru. The goal of the program is to improve competitiveness in Peru by strengthening the capacity for research and technological innovation. Doctoral studies in areas related to basic sciences and engineering are supported through this program. Scholarship recipients will return to Peru after completing their academic programs and contribute to the country by reaching the goals set by the National Strategic Plan for Science, Technology and Innovation for Competitiveness and Human Development 2006-2021.

The FINCyT Science and Technology program was created through a $25 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank to Peru with additional funding of $11 million from the Peruvian Treasury.
