The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Rising Talents are presented to fifteen promising young women, three from each world region (Africa and the Arab States, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America), in order to support and encourage them to pursue their scientific careers. They were selected among the best National and Regional fellows.
Dedicated to both honoring distinguished women scientists as well as supporting promising young women researchers throughout their careers, the L’Oréal-UNESCO program has established the International Rising Talent Grants awarded annually to 15 PhD students and post-doctoral Fellows. Chosen from among the winners of the 250 fellowships awarded locally by L’Oréal subsidiaries and UNESCO around the world, these young researchers are indeed the future of science.
The International Rising Talents are already making significant contributions in disciplines as varied as ecology and sustainable development, physics, pharmacology, epidemiology, medical research, neuroscience and evolutionary biology.
This online registration platform will respectively enable you to apply to the International Rising Talents program, or to participate in the selection process. The next call for application will open on June 22th 2016.
