For Women in Science Border white

For Women in Science encourages the vocations of girls in high school, supports women in research, and recognizes excellence in a field where women are underrepresented.

Women scientists at the cutting-edge Border blue

Today, only 28%* of researchers are women and only 3% of Scientific Nobel Prizes have been awarded to women.


While men and women are equally represented in scientific courses at the age of 16-19, the representation of women in scientific disciplines reduces when responsibility is increased.


Since its creation 18 years ago, the L’Oréal Corporate Foundation, alongside UNESCO, has been committed to increasing the number of women in scientific research. By awarding prizes and fellowships in international, regional and national ceremonies, the L’Oréal Corporate Foundation recognizes and supports the career of the most brilliant women scientists.

The Awards

AS ROLE MODELS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS, BRILLIANT AND COMMITTED IN THE MOST COMPETITIVE FIELDS OF RESEARCH OF OUR TIME, THE LAUREATES ILLUSTRATE THE REMARKABLE CONTRIBUTIONS THAT WOMEN CAN BRING TO SCIENCE.

Each year, the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science award recognizes 5 eminent female scientist from the 5 regions of the world for their remarkable contribution to the advancement of research.


Researchers from all over the world are invited to nominate candidates. The final selection is carried out by an independent jury made up of distinguished members of the scientific community.


97 laureates have been honoured, distinguished for the excellence of their scientific work, including professors Elizabeth H. Blackburn and Ada Yonath, who both subsequently won a Nobel Prize.
