LOral USA launches new science fellowship program

New York, NY May 15th, 2003..L'Oral USA has announced the creation of a new for Women in Science U.S. Fellowship Program. Designed to continue the legacy of support and encouragement that has become a trademark of the company's international initiative, the L'ORAL-UNESCO for Women in Science Awards, the new U.S. Fellowship program will provide education and research grants to young women pursuing scientific careers.

L'Oral USA will award 5 annual fellowships to young women who are graduate students or post doctoral researchers in the natural sciences, engineering, computer science and mathematics. Fellowship grants of $20,000 will be awarded to each recipient. A jury comprised primarily of for Women in Science North American Laureate winners will select the yearly recipients - the first of which are scheduled to be announced in March of 2004.
