There are three more weeks in which young researchers can compete in the “For Women in Science” competition to win one of the four 42,000 USD scholarships awarded by L’Oréal and UNESCO.
The National Scholarship Program is addressed to Romanian researchers aged 35 years or over, who are either PhD students or have obtained the PhD degree and are pursuing a postgraduate program in Romania.
At its ninth consecutive edition, the project has awarded 17 Romanian researchers so far and the total amount of scholarships awarded reached a total of 714,000 lei. Since 2009, over 350 application files have been submitted from over 50 educational institutions that have been judged and evaluated by reputable researchers over 500 hours in total.
With the help of the scholarships, the young winners in Romania had the chance to finance their projects and to develop their research projects.
Scientists can get closer to a scholarship offered by L’Oréal and UNESCO in three simple steps. To be able to sign up for a project, you need to create an account on the platform: www.forwomeninscience.com . Young researchers can apply for the competition until September 7, 2018, and the selected projects will be announced in November 2018. The works are evaluated by a jury of renowned researchers from the local scientific community.
