The 2021 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Rising Talent Programme is OPEN for applications. Please can you help spread the word across your respective areas.
There are five awards available for outstanding female early-career scientists, with a bursary of £15,000.
The five awards will be dedicated to research in the fields of Physical Science; Engineering; Mathematics and Computing; Life Science and Sustainable Development. 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 here https://www.forwomeninscience.com/authority/united-kingdom-and-ireland---national-programmes by the deadline of 31st May 17:00 GMT.
The team are currently planning for a September awards ceremony, covid-19 restrictions allowing, and will announce more details of the winners’ announcement date and jury in due course.
