Bova was one of five women in STEM that was awarded $60,000 by the beauty leader to advance important postdoctoral research
L’Oréal USA announced the recipients of the 2019 For Women in Science (FWIS) Fellowship, which annually awards five female postdoctoral scientists grants of $60,000 each to advance their research. This is the 16th year of the program, which to date has recognized 80 postdoctoral female scientists with over $4 million since 2003.
Samantha Bova, a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences, was honored for her research in paleoceanography which studies past changes to Earth’s climate in order to improve our current knowledge of how Earth will respond to future climate perturbations. The fellowship will provide Bova with funding for laboratory analyses and student lab assistance, allowing her to produce higher-resolution records of climate and icefield variability.
