‘The world needs science and science needs women’ was the motto when cosmetics company L’Oréal and UNESCO joined forces in 1998. The programme they set up aims at stimulating the opportunities for women in science.

The Dutch L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellowships are an initiative of L’Oréal, UNESCO, the Dutch Network of Women Professors, and the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS).

The fellowship is designed to select talented, committed young women scientists who are active in the field of life sciences.
