2020 L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa Programme

L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science 2020 Sub-Saharan Africa Programme: Calls for Applications from Young Talented African Women in Science for its 2020 L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa Programme. Deadline: 30th March, 2020, See Eligibility, Benefits, Selection Criteria and Application Guidelines.

The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Sub-Saharan Africa programme aims to promote and encourage the participation of 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.

So far, the majority of applications received for the sub-Saharan Africa regional program have come mainly from South Africa. Given the importance of the challenges of African scientific research and the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science’s commitment to encourage more women scientists across sub-Saharan Africa, they decided to separate the initial regional program into two separate programs: A new programme dedicated to South Africa and The regional program of sub-Saharan Africa, with the 48 other countries of the region. For this 11th edition, 20 endowments will be given to encourage young researchers currently in doctoral or post-doctoral studies to pursue a brilliant scientific career.
