HYDERABAD: L'Oréal India announced on Friday the 2022 edition of the 'For Young Women in Science' Scholarship (FYWIS), a nationwide merit-based scholarship programme that provides a platform for aspiring girls to pursue their graduation in the field of science.
L'Oréal India has invited applications for the programme, with successful candidates receiving a scholarship of up to INR 2,50,000 to cover their academic expenses. The programme, which is an extension of the international 'L'ORÉAL UNESCO FOR WOMEN IN SCIENCE' partnership, recognises women's contributions to shaping the future of science by assisting and supporting them in achieving their goals.
The 'For Young Women in Science' scholarship (FYWIS) programme, established in 2003 in India, allows young women from less privileged backgrounds to pursue science-based graduation programmes at any reputable academic institution of their choice. Graduate studies in any field of science are welcome, including pure sciences, applied sciences, engineering, and medicine.
Krishna Vilasini Bharadwaj, Director – Corporate Affairs and Engagement, L'Oréal India said, "At L'Oréal, we believe women empowerment is a thing of real beauty, and we are committed to empowering women both inside L'Oréal and in the world around us. Today, great strides are being made to ensure equal representation in science and gaining access to STEM education remains incredibly challenging for women in India. By providing them with financial assistance, this scholarship aims to create avenues for meritorious girls to pursue varied scientific disciplines. Since its inception, the 'For Young Women in Science' scholarship programme has successfully empowered 485 young women in the field of science. We look forward to inspiring many more young minds and helping them build a bright future and contribute towards society."
