For the 2020 funding period, we have gained additional sponsors.

Dr. Heidi Mahnke and Prof. Dr. Heinz-Eberhard Mahnke will fund a postdoctoral student in experimental physics with 5,000 euros annually for the next 3 years.

The German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) is again funding a stem cell researcher for 1 year.


Extended support from the UNESCO L'Oréal programme

With the 2019 funding period, the UNESCO-L'Oréal funding programme will increase support for the CNV Foundation. Each year, three women scientists are supported for a period of two years. The support amounts to 14,600 euros per stipend.
The stipends receive monthly support of 400 euros over 24 months as well as support of 5,000 euros each for flexible use to facilitate the compatibility of family and career.

At the annual foundation meeting, three of the successful postdoctoral students of that year will be selected for the L´Oréal-Unesco For Women in Science programme of the upcoming year.

In addition, the foundation receives a grant of 5,000 euros per year to offer training at the foundation meetings.
