Rising Talent Programme for Women in Science
The L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland For Women in Science Rising Talent Programme offers awards to promote, enhance and encourage the contribution of women pursuing their research careers in the UK or Ireland.
Since 2007, each year five women post-doctoral researchers are awarded a grant worth £15,000 (equivalent € in Ireland). The awards have been designed to provide flexible and practical financial support for winners to spend on scientific equipment, paying for childcare, travel costs or indeed whatever they need to continue their research.
The programme is run in partnership between L’Oréal UK and Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society.https://www.forwomeninscience.com/challenge/show/32
