L’Oreal USA For Women in Science Program

The L'Oreal USA For Women in Science fellowship program honors female scientists at a critical stage in their careers with grants of $60,000 each. Since 2003, we have awarded 70 postdoctoral women scientists over $3.5 million in grants. We are seeking five exceptional female scientists looking to advance their research and serve as role models for the next generation of girls in STEM.

Applications for the 2018 L'Oreal USA For Women in Science program will open on December 4, 2017 and are due by February 2, 2018.

Candidates are selected from a variety of fields including the life and physical/material sciences, technology (including computer science), engineering, and mathematics. Candidates must have completed their PhD and have started in their postdoctoral position by the application deadline.
