L'Oreal For Women in Science Fellowships

L'Oreal For Women in Science Fellowship Applications Open

The three L'Oeal Fellowships, worth $20,000 each are intended to help early-career women scientists and engineers consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in their chosen field. The Fellowships are awarded to women who have completed their PhD in the past five years – allowance is made for maternity leave – and who have already shown scientific excellence and leadership.

Applications close midnight Monday 2 May 2011.

The one-year Fellowships can be used to help finance the personal scientific research of the Fellows, including equipment, reagents, consumables, travel expenses and conferences. The Fellowship may also be used for child care or hiring a research assistant to cover maternity leave.
