Call for nominations: FWIS International Awards

Call for nominations: For Women In Science International Awards.

The LOreal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Awards are presented every year to five outstanding women scientists – one per each of the following regions: Africa and the Arab States, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, North America - in recognition of their scientific accomplishments. Each scientist has had a unique career path combining exceptional talent, a deep commitment to her profession and remarkable courage in a field still largely dominated by men.

The scientific fields considered for the awards alternate every other year between LifeSciences (even years) and PhysicalSciences, Mathematics and Computer Science (odd years).

The 2022 edition of the Awards will designate five outstanding scientific researchers in the life and environmental sciences. Each of the five Laureates will receive an award of €100,000 for her contribution to advances in scientific research at a ceremony to be held in March 2022.
