L’Oréal Netherlands, the Netherlands Commission for Unesco and the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities (KHMW) have joined hands to offer national prizes to young female researchers as part of the Netherlands L’Oréal-Unesco For Women in Science programme.
The aim of the Netherlands L’Oréal-Unesco For Women in Science Rising Talent Prizes is to advance the academic careers of young women researchers in the Netherlands holding a position as PhD candidate or postdoctoral fellow in STEM or Life Sciences, with a maximum of three years post-PhD academic experience.
The three annual prizes offers young women researchers an individual award of €3,500, €2,000 or €1,000 in recognition of their academic achievements and future potential. The amount is to be spent on research-related activities at the discretion of the laureate. In addition, the first prize laureate of the Dutch Rising Talents Prize is entitled to be nominated for the International Rising Talents programme of FWIS.
Closing date for applications is 20 January 2022
