Next generation of science stars: 5 female scientists receive 2006 LOral USA fellowships

New York, NY -- L'Oral USA announced today the recipients of its esteemed 2006 Fellowships for Women In Science at an awards ceremony at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Five young women, all on the cutting-edge of scientific advances, were awarded $20,000 each to carry out research projects. Now in its third year, the highly selective L'Oral USA Fellows program recognizes and rewards up-and-coming female scientists from across the country and disciplines.

While the scientific competence of men and women may be on an equal footing, there is an undeniable divergence between men's and women's careers in the sciences after they reach their late 20s and early 30s. At each successive stage on the career path, women drop out at higher rates than men. For women in science, the critical years occur during the transition from post-doctoral student to becoming a career scientist, which often coincides with starting a family. The L'Oral USA Fellowships encourage young women to continue their careers in science, by both supporting them financially and helping them strengthen their networks in the scientific community.

"The world benefits from many new discoveries that scientists and their research yield, and the need for trained scientists and researchers has increased," said Laurent Attal, President and CEO, L'Oral USA. "Women continue to be underrepresented in many important scientific disciplines and L'Oral believes that more can be done to encourage and support women in all fields of science. We firmly believe that science needs women."

Drawing from a competitive pool of talented post-doctoral researchers, the L'Oral USA Fellowships for Women In Science enable young scientists to continue working toward breakthroughs in their research. Women scientists like these Fellows often serve as inspirational role models, encouraging girls across the country to stay interested in science.
