Estée Lauder Funds Awards To Support Female Scientists
Two international awards from Estée Lauder and Nature magazine are now up for grabs to celebrate the work of women in STEM
Estée Lauder has partnered with media platform Nature to shine a spotlight on the achievements of women in science. Additionally, they want to acknowledge those who are working to get more women and girls involved in science. They are awarding two international awards: the Nature Research Award for Inspiring Science and the Nature Research Award for Innovating Science.
The Nature Research Award for Inspiring Science will honor female scientists who have completed their PhD in the past 10 years and have made outstanding achievements in their research. The the Innovating Science award will go to a person or organization spearheading initiatives to increase female access and interest in STEM.
As a company built by a woman, Estée Lauder wants to support women who also are pioneers in their work. The group also employs numerous female scientists and engineers.
Winners of the awards will receive up to $15,000 to spend on their research and other initiatives. They will also connect the female winners to other scientific experts to support their work.
