2014 International Fellowships

Fifteen 2013 UNESCO-L’Oréal International Fellowships were granted to young women whose promising research projects have a potential impact on human well-being and the environment.

The recipients of Fellowships in 2013 carry out their research in various fields within the life sciences, such as virology, ecology or food science. These passionate young scientists are often motivated by matters touching on local public health or biodiversity protection.

The 2013 Special Fellowship “in the footsteps of Marie Curie” was awarded to Professor Devi Stuart-Fox from the University of Melbourne , Australia. In the ten years since Devi Stuart-Fox was awarded a UNESCO-L’Oréal For Women in Science International Fellowship, this brilliant evolutionary biologist has made groundbreaking discoveries and numerous contributions to understanding the role that colors play in animal communication.
