Cara Brook awarded a 2020 For Women in Science Fellowship
Branco Weiss Fellow Cara Brook has received a 2020 For Women in Science (FWIS) Fellowship by L’Oréal USA. The annual program awards five female postdoctoral scientists grants of $60,000 each to advance their research. In addition to grant funding, FWIS Fellows receive mentorship, media training, career coaching and recognition. The 2020 For Women in Science fellowship candidates were evaluated based on their intellectual merit, research potential, scientific excellence and their commitment to supporting women and girls in science. The L’Oréal USA fellowship program includes a requirement to ensure recipients are committed to serving as role models for younger generations. Applications were reviewed by experienced scientists in the candidates’ respective fields through a partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which manages the application process.
The L’Oréal USA For Women in Science program is the U.S. component of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Awards. Through the international program and the nearly 50 national and regional programs more than 3,400 female scientists from 116 countries have received fellowships to pursue promising research projects.
