Alongside the 5 FWIS Laureates, 15 International Rising Talents will be celebrated in Paris in March for their scientific work, including C-DEBI researcher Dr. Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert! Dr. Trembath-Reichert, Assistant Professor at Arizona State University, studies how life survives and even thrives in the little explored subsurface of our planet, research that provides clues about the conditions necessary for life to exist elsewhere in our solar system.
The L’Oréal USA For Women in Science fellowship program awards five women postdoctoral scientists annually with grants of $60,000 each for their contributions in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields and commitment to serving as role models for younger generations. The program is the U.S. component of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Fellowships program. Celebrating its thirteenth year in the U.S., the For Women in Science program has awarded 65 postdoctoral women scientists over $3 million in grants. L’Oréal USA partners with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to manage the program’s application and peer-review process. Each year, the program attracts talented applicants from diverse STEM fields, representing some of the nation’s leading academic institutions and laboratories. The 2017 L’Oréal USA for Women in Science application period is now open and will close on February 3, 2017.
