The L’Oréal-UNESCO Young Talents Caribbean for Women in Science Program 2024

Application Deadline: MAY 27, 2024

Created in 2023, the L’Oréal-UNESCO Young Talents Caribbean for Women in Science program is committed to supporting the involvement of young women in scientific research and scientific careers. This program identifies and rewards brilliant young women researchers in life and environmental sciences, material sciences, mathematics, computer and information sciences, engineering sciences and technology.


The program seeks to award young doctoral, post-doctoral students, and early career scientists – in the Caribbean region – for the excellence of their academic level, the originality of their scientific project, but also their desire to pass on their passion to the younger generation. However, since the creation of this program, it is clear that inequalities and the glass ceiling persist in the world of academic research: only 18% of senior academic positions in science are held by women and, worldwide, only 4% of women have been awarded Nobel Prizes in science*.
