The program provided the fellows with financial and institutional resources, allowing them to focus on their research areas and generate scientific breakthroughs, which can boast a bigger impact on the overall economy of the country.
Multiple fellowships were available for current and prospective PhD students and degree-seekers:

Fellowships were awarded an opportunity to apply for an extension to continue the Fellowship program, which depended on the academic progress, and other duties carried out during the year by the fellow.
