2020 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Rising Talent Programme
The 2020 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Rising Talent Programme is now OPEN for applications.
The programme will be awarding five outstanding female early-career scientists a bursary of £15,000 (equivalent € for candidates in Ireland), on 21st May 2020 at a ceremony in London.
This year, L’Oréal UK and Ireland is dedicating one of their five awards to outstanding scientific work promoting sustainable development. The aim is to contribute to the strengthening of research and advancing the achievement of the scientific evidence base within the interdisciplinary Sustainability Science. The new Sustainable Development prize will sit alongside four other established awards, dedicated to research in the fields of Physical science; Engineering; Mathematics and Computing and Life Science.
The awards have been designed to provide flexible and practical financial support to ensure these women further their research and careers. With the flexible grant, winners may choose to spend their fellowship on buying scientific equipment, paying for childcare, travel costs or indeed whatever they need to continue their research. In addition to financial support, each year past and present fellows receive training and networking opportunities supported by L’Oréal.
Candidates can apply online at www.forwomeninscience.com by the deadline of 27th January at 17:00 GMT.
