There are now just two weeks left to submit applications for the 2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science UK & Ireland Fellowship Awards Programme.
The programme will award five outstanding female early-career scientists a bursary of £15,000 (equivalent € for candidates in Ireland), on 15th May 2019 at a ceremony in London. There will be at least one winner from the disciplines of mathematics, engineering and computer science.
Applicants should apply online at www.forwomeninscience.com by the deadline of 1 February 2019 at midday.
The fellowship awards are open to female early-career researchers working in the field of life and physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and computer sciences. The fellowships 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.
