L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science
November 5 is the commencement of the L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program. Outstanding women postdocs are encouraged to apply.
Now entering its ninth cycle, the L'Oréal USA Fellowships For Women In Science is a national program that annually recognizes and provides support to five women postdoctoral researchers in the U.S. who are pursuing careers in the life and physical/material sciences, as well as mathematics, engineering, and computer science. Recipients receive up to $60,000 each that they must apply towards their postdoctoral research.
Since its inception in 2003, the L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program has awarded 45 fellowships to women scientists across the U.S. Each year, the program attracts a number of talented applicants from diverse scientific fields, representing some of the nation's leading academic institutions and laboratories. The award selection process includes a two-stage review process, including a first-round review by an interdisciplinary panel of scientists and engineers. A distinguished jury of eminent scientists and engineers reviews the top applications and selects the L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science recipients.
The recipients of the L'Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program participate in a week of events that includes an awards ceremony, professional development workshops, media training, and networking opportunities. These workshops, which are facilitated by the program's partner, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will encompass job search techniques, interviewing skills, budget development for grant requests, and strategies for submissions to peer-reviewed publications.
