The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Programme celebrates, enhances and enables the contribution of women to scientific research
The awards fall into three main categories:
The L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards distinguish five world-class female scientists from five different continents in recognition of their outstanding contributions to scientific progress for the benefit of humankind
The L’Oréal-UNESCO UK & Ireland Fellowships encourage post-doctoral level women in science to continue to pursue their research at a critical point in their career by providing flexible financial aid as well as science communications and media training. Similar National Fellowships are run in 46 countries around the world.
The International Rising Talents Programme brings together the best Fellows from around the world from the winners of the National and Regional Fellowships of that year.
