“For the Women and the Science” is the ambitious program that has put in the spotlight since 2007 the remarkable scientific women whose researches will contribute to take science move forward.
The initiative came from the L’Oréal Maroc subsidiary supported by the Unesco that locally uses this program to help, through a scholarship, young women in their scientific researches.
A total of 37 Moroccan women scholarship holders were so able to continue their research works and develop networks within the scientific community in Morocco.
This year, the program takes a regional dimension by covering henceforth, the following countries of the Maghreb: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya.
For that purpose, both organizations intend to encourage, by 5 scholarships for 10 000 euros each, 5 African women post-PhD student researchers and working in one of the 4 countries of the Maghreb (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya).
Applications are opened from 15th June to 30th September 2014 and should directly be made on-line on www.fwis.fr
The 5 best researches will be rewarded during a prestigious official ceremony.
