L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Postgraduate Scholarship, Canada

Created in 1998, the international L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science program aims to improve the position of women in science by recognizing outstanding women researchers who have contributed to scientific progress, and young women scientists engaged in exemplary and promising projects. As an extension of this program, L’Oréal Canada Inc., in collaboration with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, offers two postgraduate scholarship supplements to young Canadian women scientists involved in promising research projects. The objective is to create a network of women who will act as role models to younger generations within the framework of a Canadian mentorship program for girls in science delivered by Actua, a national charity and supported by L’Oréal Canada Inc.
