The 2022 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science UK & Ireland Rising Talent Programme awards five outstanding early-career women scientists a grant of £15,000 to support their research in the fields of Physical Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, Life Sciences and Sustainable Development.
The awards have been designed to provide flexible and practical financial support to enable these women scientists to further their research and careers. With the 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 (https://www.forwomeninscience.com/challenge/show/32) by the deadline of 13 January 2022 at 17:00 GMT.
There are two webinars with some of the 2021 fellows speaking about their experience of the programme and an opportunity for potential candidates to ask questions. Webinars can be registered for here. (https://forms.office.com/r/LpygUFzcaq)
