The L’Oréal India Scholarships For Young Women in Science Programme is an extension of the international L’ORÉAL UNESCO FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE partnership. The program with the support of the Indian National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO has helped young women, passionate about science, to achieve their dreams and aspirations of pursuing a career in science. By providing the financial assistance to pursue scientific education, this scholarship reinforces the vocation of women in scientific disciplines.
The L’Oréal India For Young Women in Science programme is now in its 13th year and has enabled 200 young women from economically disadvantaged sections of society, to complete their graduation in a scientific field of their choice.
Scholarships worth Rs. 250,000 each are awarded to promising young women over a period of four years.
