The L’Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland For Women In Science programme was launched in January 2007. The Fellowships are run in partnership with the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Committee for UNESCO with the support of the Royal Society.
In 2022, six awards of £15,000 are granted to outstanding female postdoctoral researchers. The grants have been designed to provide practical help for the winners to continue in their chosen fields. For example, winners may choose to spend their fellowship on purchasing scientific equipment or paying for childcare costs or indeed whatever they may need to continue their research. Over 3,000 women from 117 countries have been recognised for their research and received funding to further their studies since the global programme was founded in 1998.
