Each year, L'Oréal USA partners with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to identify five exceptional US-based female postdoctoral scientists who are granted $60,000 each to advance their research. Over the last 16 years, the L'Oréal USA For Women in Science fellowship program has awarded 80 postdoctoral women scientists over $4 million in grants.
In addition to providing $60,000 to advance their research, For Women in Science fellows receive mentorship, career coaching, media training, and access to a robust network of fellow female scientists.
The For Women in Science Fellowship welcomes applicants from across the scientific spectrum. The 2019 fellowship recipients were honored last month for their important research across a wide range of fields including neuroscience, biomedical engineering, paleoceanography, materials science and RNA biology.
The 2020 L'Oréal USA For Women in Science fellowship application period begins on December 2, 2019 and runs until Jan. 31, 2020. Applicants should have exceptional academic records, clearly articulated research proposals with the potential for scientific achievement, outstanding letters of recommendation from advisors and demonstrated success or interest in supporting women and girls in STEM through community service or outreach initiatives.
