The Fellowships are jointly offered by UNESCO and L'ORÉAL, as part of the For Women In Science Programme, to support and promote women in scientific research all over the world.

The international Fellowships are awarded to promising young women scientists, at the doctoral or postdoctoral level, to undertake a research project in the life sciences which has been accepted by a reputable institution outside their home country.

15 international Fellowships are awarded each year. Each Fellowship is worth a maximum of US$40,000 to cover a research period of up to 24 months.

The international Fellowships aspire to support the scientific vocations of young women, to give them the opportunity to build international networks in the scientific community, and to gain crucial experience that they can bring back and share with others in their home countries.

The Fellowship beneficiaries are geographically spread, three Fellows being selected from each of the following regions: Africa; Arab States; Asia & the Pacific; Europe & North America; and Latin America & the Caribbean.

Who can apply?

Candidates must be female and no more than 35 years old (born after 1 January 1975). Preference will be given to candidates already possessing a PhD degree (or equivalent) in the field of life sciences at the time of application. Applications from doctoral students will also be considered. Candidates must be engaged in and undertake research in one or allied fields of life sciences, including biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, agriculture, medicine, pharmacy and physiology.

Completed applications, together with supporting documentation, should be submitted to the UNESCO National Commission of the Candidate's home country.

Last date for submission of entry to contest: June 30, 2009
