€ 25,000 Grant L’Oreal-UNESCO Fellowships for African Women in Science 2019

Starting from this 10th edition, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa programme will celebrate 20 young female scientists (15 doctorates and 5 post-doctorates) instead of 14 young female scientists the years before, for the quality of their research and encourage them to pursue a brilliant career in science in any Sub-Saharan African country
