The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Australia & New Zealand Fellowships were launched in 2007 and have recognised 39 outstanding local scientists, supporting them to continue their research and help them rise to leadership positions in their field of expertise.
Each Fellow is awarded $25,000 for a one year project. This is intended to provide practical help for the winners to undertake research in their chosen fields and the winners may choose to spend their fellowship on buying scientific equipment, paying for child care costs, conference & travel costs or other items they may need to continue their research.
Prize value: Four $25,000 AUD Australian Fellowships; One $25,000 NZD New Zealand Fellowship
Eligibility criteria: Female scientists; no age limit; must be within five years of their PhD (not including career breaks) for research at an Australian or New Zealand academic or research institution; four awards in Australia, one award in New Zealand; nominated by a panel of experts
