L’Oreal-UNESCO Sub-Saharan Regional Fellowships 2019 for African Women in Science

الموعد النهائي لتقديم الطلبات: نيسان 29th 2019

The L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa programme aims to promote and encourage young African women in science. This programme identifies and rewards talented young female scientists in the field of Formal sciences, Life sciences, Environmental sciences, Physical sciences, Engineering and Technological sciences.

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 (Appendix 1).

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.
