L’Oréal Australia and New Zealand For Women in Science Fellowships
With the support of the Australian National Commission for UNESCO
endorsed by the Australian Academy of Science
The world needs science… science needs women
The three $25,000 L’Oréal Australia and New Zealand For Women in Science Fellowships are intended to help early career women scientists to consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in science. The Fellowships are awarded to women who have shown scientific excellence in their career to date and who have an appropriate research plan that will be assisted by the one-year Fellowship.
