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

To date, most of the applications received for this regional programme, came principally from South Africa. Considering the importance of supporting African scientific research and our commitment to empowering more female scientists from across Sub-Saharan Africa, we decided to separate the initial regional programme into two programmes:

-A new national programme for South Africa-The regional programme for the 48 other countries of the Sub-Saharan region

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

WORTH

15grants of € 10,000 each, will be granted to 15 African PhD. students enrolled in a Sub-Saharan African doctoral studies institute and completing their doctorate in a research laboratory.

5grants of € 15,000 each, will be granted to 5African postdoctoral researchers working in a laboratory or research institute registered in one of the region’s countries.
