The Background

Currently, in its 13th year, the Young Women in Science scholarships were instituted in the year 2003. Since then L'Oréal has empowered 300 young women to pursue a career in Medicine, Engineering, Information Technology, Pharmacy, Biotechnology, and other graduate courses.

Why empower women in the field of Science?

On 23rd of September, India celebrated the 100th birth anniversary of Dr Asima Chatterjee. Dr Chatterjee dedicated 60 years of her life towards research of native medicinal plants. A scholar and globally renowned chemist, she has had an illustrious career and was the first female recipient of the coveted Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize. What makes this story relevant is that it was only after several decades that another female scientist would make it for the prize.
