Founded in 1998, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science partnership was created to recognize and promote women in science.
Its programs reward established women scientists whose outstanding achievements have contributed to the advancement of scientific knowledge and of its benefits to society and provide support to promising young women who are already making significant contributions in their scientific disciplines.
Scientists and scientific institutions around the world are invited to present and nominate the most qualified candidates for the 2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Awards, until 13 July 2018. Their active participation will ensure that the best female researchers from each continent are recognized and rewarded for their scientific excellence.
The Awards will be presented in March 2019 in Paris to the five women selected by an international jury for their outstanding contribution to scientific advancement. Each of the Award Laureates will receive €100,000.
The candidate must:
- be recognized for her personal scientific excellence among the international scientific community
- be actively involved in scientific research
- be involved in any field of the Physical Sciences, Mathematics or Computer Science
- not be directly or personally involved in the For Women in Science programme, as a jury member or otherwise, in any country.
