L'OREAL Baltic Fellowship Programme „For Women in Science” 2017

Founded in 1998, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science partnership was created to recognize and promote talented women in science, to reduce gender inequality, to inspire the next generation of women. Since the launch of the programme, more than 2500 women researchers from over 112 countries have received support for building their career.

From now, outstanding Estonian woman researchers have an opportunity to join the programme: one fellowship of 6000 EUR will be awarded to a PhD under the age of 40 working in Estonia in the field of life and environmental sciences or physical sciences.

For conditions, requirements and criteria, see Rules&Regulations.

Applications are to be submitted on the portal http://www.forwomeninscience.com/. Potential applicants should create an account, register and upload the required information and documents. Deadline: 7 March 2017.

A jury established by the Estonian Academy of Sciences will evaluate the applications. The Fellowship Board, composed of L'Oreal Baltic Director General Johan Berg, President of the Academy Tarmo Soomere and Chairperson of the Estonian National Commission of UNESCO Kristin Kuutma, will announce the fellowship.

The winner will be announced in the end of April; the winner will receive the award at the official ceremony that will be held in Riga, Latvia in May.
