L'Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Women in Science Fellowships

The L'Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women in Science are awards offered by a partnership between L'Oréal UK & Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society, to promote, enhance and encourage the contribution of women pursuing their research careers in the UK or Ireland in the fields of the life and physical sciences.

The National Fellowships are offered under the umbrella of the L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Programme, which has promoted women in scientific research on a global scale since 1998.

United Kingdom   Ireland

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
