Europe is calling for nominations for the Return to Science Fellowship.
new fellowship, which comprises a grant of 4000 Euros and other benefits, was
initiated in 2009 by Lorraine Maltby (winner of the SETAC Europe Environmental
Education Award 2009) during the opening ceremony of the SETAC Europe Annual
Meeting in 2009.
this Fellowship, SETAC Europe seeks highly qualified and talented scientists or
engineers (female or male) in the field of environmental sciences who wish to
return to a career in science after a professional break of one year or more
due to either family commitments (e.g., caring for disabled, infirm or vulnerable
family members, child birth or care, elderly care) or a period of illness. The
award recipient should be based in a geographical area administered by SETAC
Europe (i.e., Europe and Africa).

- letter(s) of recommendation or support, highlighting
the track record and development potential of the applicant
- an e-photograph

for progression in her or his scientific or engineering discipline (i.e.,
objectives and outputs)
- what, if any, other support, financial or otherwise, is
available (e.g., from existing employment where relevant) and what use has
or will be been made of it
