L'Oreal USA takes pride in honoring female scientists at critical 
stages of their careers, and with the 2015 For Women in Science Fellowship, the company provided $60,000 fellowships to advance recipients'
postdoctoral research.
Celebrating its 12th year in the United States, the L'Oreal For
Women in Science program has awarded 60 postdoctoral women scientists nearly $3 million in grants. The 2015 fellows exemplify the range of research women in STEM are pursuing:
	 >		Sarah Ballard, a postdoctoral fellow in exoplanetary astrophysics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology;
	 >		Julie Meyer, a postdoctoral scientist in marine microbiology at the University of Florida;
	 >		Sarah Richardson, a postdoctoral fellow in synthetic biology at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's Joint BioEnergy Institute and at the University of California, Berkeley;
	 >		Claire Robertson, a postdoctoral scientist in cancer bioengineering at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab; and
	 >		Ming Yi, a postdoctoral scientist in condensed matter
physics at the University of California, Berkeley.
"As shown by this year's For Women in Science fellows, the
contributions of women in STEM are exceptional, yet too often go unnoticed," says Frederic Roze, President and CEO of
L'Oreal USA. "As the global leader in beauty, L'Oreal's pioneering legacy of innovation is built upon our scientific workforce
- which is made up of more than 70 percent women - and we are
proud to recognize the achievements of these fellows through
our ongoing support of women in science."

The L'Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science program is a
global program that recognizes and rewards women scientists
around the world. The program supports women at different
stages of their careers and encourages more young women to
pursue STEM in a field where women remain underrepresented. Since the worldwide program began in 1998, more than
2,250 scientists in more than 110 countries have been awarded.
"The L'Oreal For Women in Science Fellowship helped me at
a pivotal time in my career, when funding was crucial to move
my research forward," says Dr. Anne Carpenter, 2006 L'Oreal USA For Women in Science Fellow and Imaging Platform
Director at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. "The grant
allowed me to create, develop and test a software program to
more effectively measure cells in images to help investigate
diseases. This software has been cited nearly 3,000 times and
has yielded groundbreaking discoveries in cellular biology and
biomedicine regarding the Ebola virus, tuberculosis and leukemia, among others."
The U.S. fellowship program includes a requirement focused on ensuring the fellows have a commitment to serve
as role models for younger generations. The 2015 fellowship
candidates were evaluated based on their intellectual merit,
research potential, scientific excellence and their commitment
to supporting women and girls in science. mt
