The five awards will be dedicated to research in the fields of Physical Science; Engineering; Mathematics and Computing; Life Science and Sustainable Development.

The awards are designed to provide flexible and practical financial support to ensure these women further their research and careers. With the flexible grant, winners may choose to spend their fellowship on buying scientific equipment, paying for childcare, travel costs or indeed whatever they need to continue their research. In addition to financial support, each year past and present fellows receive training and networking opportunities supported by L’Oréal.

Candidates can apply online here by the deadline of 31 May, 17:00 GMT.
