For Women in Science

UNESCO-L'Oréal Support Programme for Women Scientists with Children

Germany has had its own "For Women in Science" programme since 2006. It is supported by the German UNESCO Commission and the L'Oréal Group Germany, in partnership with the Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation.

The German programme is aimed at outstandingly qualified female doctoral candidates and postdocs with children working in Germany in the experimental natural sciences. In Germany in particular, starting a family often still leads to the interruption or abandonment of promising careers. To make it easier to reconcile family planning and career, L'Oréal and the German UNESCO Commission, in cooperation with the Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard Foundation, therefore sponsor three highly talented and committed young female scientists each year.

Applications can be submitted annually from September onwards via the Foundation's application portal.
