L'Oreal-UNESCO Fellowships For Women in Science
Applications for the L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women In Science are now open.
This year, four outstanding female post doctoral scientists in the UK or Ireland will be granted a fellowship worth £15,000 each.
The LOréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women In Science were launched in 2007 and are designed to provide flexible and practical help for the winners to further extend research in their respected fields. Winners may choose to spend their fellowship grants in whichever way is most helpful to them in continuing their research, whether it be buying scientific equipment, hiring an assistant or paying for childcare costs.
Julie McManus, Scientific Director at LOréal said: Now in its fifteenth year, For Women in Science continues to support and encourage women in science as important role models for inspiring the next generation of young women. With two Nobel Prizes winners in our midst, the For Women in Science fellows all demonstrate the determination and excellence needed to succeed within their fields.
The closing date for applications to the 2013 LOréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women In Science is Friday 15 March 2013.
