Applications Call For Women In Science Program

October 01, 2006

L’Oréal USA announced recently the start of the application period for its esteemed L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program. Now in its fourth year, this national program aims to annually recognize, reward and support five women post-doctoral researchers in the U.S. who are pursuing careers in the life and physical/material sciences, as well as mathematics, engineering and computer science. As part of its commitment to further help exceptional women scientists reach their goals, L’Oréal USA has doubled the value of its fellowship grants from a current $20,000 to $40,000 for the 2007 program.

Since its inception in 2003, the L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program has awarded 15 fellowships to women scientists across the U.S. Each year, the program has attracted a number of talented applicants from diverse scientific fields, representing some of the nation’s leading academic institutions and laboratories. A distinguished jury of nine eminent scientists – presided over by Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone, President, National Academy of Sciences – reviews the applications, and selects the L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science recipients each year.

The five beneficiaries of the 2007 L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science will be invited to participate in a week of events that will include an awards ceremony, professional development workshops, media training and networking opportunities. In 2007 these workshops, developed and facilitated by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will encompass job search techniques, interviewing skills and strategies for peer review publication.

The L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science program is open to women post-doctoral researchers only. Candidates interested in applying may visit the L’Oréal USA Fellowships for Women in Science site at www.lorealusa.com/forwomeninscience, to obtain more information about program eligibility and requirements. All applications must be post marked by October 31, 2006.
