ECM Faculty Focus
Applications are now open for the 2010 L'Oréal Australia For Women in Science Fellowships.
The three $20,000 Fellowships are intended to help early-career women scientists to consolidate their careers and rise to leadership positions in science.
The Fellowships are awarded to women who have shown scientific excellence in their career to date and who have an appropriate research plan that will be assisted by the one-year Fellowship.
The Fellowships are open to female scientists no more than five years past their PhD, excluding periods of maternity leave. These are one of the few fellowships which allow part of the funding to be spent on child care.
The L'Oréal Australia For Women In Science Fellowships are now in their fourth year. They are supported by the Australian Academy of Sciences and the Australian National Commission for UNESCO.
The Fellowships are highly competitive and potential nominees are encouraged to read the brief profiles of past recipients before applying.
