The L’Oréal UNESCO Fellowships offers female researchers a stay in an interdisciplinary and international academic environment at NIAS-KNAW in Amsterdam for a period of one semester.
This includes female researchers from both the Life Sciences and STEM disciplines.
The Dutch L’Oréal-Unesco FWiS-programme, which is in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS-KNAW), will award a Fellowship grant of €30.000 with the goal of advancing the academic careers of female researchers three to ten years after they have completed their PhD.
Fellows will be excused from routine administrative, (and/or) clinical, and teaching duties, allowing researchers to focus on broadening and deepening their research and writing publications or grant proposals.
