The L'Oréal-UNESCO UK and Ireland Fellowships For Women in Science are awards offered by a partnership between L'Oréal UK & Ireland, the UK National Commission for UNESCO and the Irish National Commission for UNESCO, with the support of the Royal Society, to promote, enhance and encourage the contribution of women pursuing their research careers in the UK or Ireland in the fields of the life and physical sciences.
 
Five Fellowships will be awarded in 2017 to outstanding women scientists in the early stages of their career to facilitate promising scientific research.
