Each year, the International Programme recognises the achievements of exceptional female  scientists and awards them with fellowships to help further their research. In 2016, five awards of £15,000 each*, will be offered to outstanding female post-doctoral researchers in the UK & Ireland**. Adjudicated by a panel of eminent scientists, the fellowships can be used in any number of ways - from purchasing new equipment to paying for childcare costs - to enable women scientists to further their careers and facilitate world class research.
In total, more than 2,000 women in over 100 countries have been recognised for their research and received funding to further their studies.
