L’Oréal is accepting applications for the L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women in Science program, a national program that annually recognizes, rewards and supports five women postdoctoral researchers. The awardees will be U.S.-based researchers beginning careers in the life and physical/material sciences, mathematics, engineering and computer science.

This year, L’Oréal has increased the size of the grant from $40,000 to a maximum of $60,000, with the amount of the grant based on each candidate’s research experience as well as the quality of their proposal.

The application and review process is administrated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). A jury of nine scientists—presided over by Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone, president, National Academy of Sciences—reviews the applications, and selects the L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women in Science recipients. The five fellows will be invited to attend a week of events in New York City that include an awards ceremony, professional development workshops, media training and networking opportunities. Organized and facilitated in partnership with AAAS, these workshops encompass job search techniques, interviewing skills, budget development for grant requests and strategies for peer-reviewed publication.

The L’Oréal USA Fellowships For Women in Science program is open to women postdoctoral researchers only.All applications must be postmarked by Oct. 31.
