The L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science program recognizes and rewards the contributions women make in STEM fields and identifies exceptional women researchers committed to serving as role models for younger generations. More than 2,250 women scientists in over 110 countries have been recognized since the program began in 1998.
In the US, the For Women In Science fellowship program awards five postdoctoral women scientists annually with grants of $60,000 each. Applicants are selected from a variety of fields, including the life and physical/material sciences, technology (including computer science), engineering, and mathematics.
I invite you to collaborate with us and spread the word to your community about this special fellowship program for exceptional female postdoctoral researchers who are also committed to serving as role models for the next generation of girls in STEM.
Applications will open on November 30, 2015 and are due by February 5, 2016.
