Created in 1998, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Awards recognize and support eminent women in science throughout the world. Each year, five Laureates are recognized for their contributions to the advancement of science, in Life and Environmental Sciences or Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Computer Science in alternating years.

  • Africa & the Arab States
  • Asia and the Pacific 
  • Europe
  • Latin America and the Caribbean
  • North America

One candidate will be selected for each of the five regions, the determining factor being the place of work for at least 5 years, not the nationality of the candidate.

Teams are not eligible for nomination.

Each of the five Laureates will receive an Award of € 100,000.
