Martha Schwarzkopf Award for Women in Science

Sponsored by Henkel

Dedicated to supporting female researchers worldwide who possess a doctorate and have long-standing experience in the fields of natural sciences, medicine, and computer sciences, whose field of work is in hair research or related fields, such as textile and wool fiber research, the analysis of biological surfaces, or the interaction of substances with hair or scalp. Female researchers with a completed master’s degree from the same research fields may apply for the award for “Emerging Talents”, even if they are still at the beginning of their scientific career.

The awards are endowed with 10,000 euros for the main prize or 5,000 euros for the “Emerging Talent” prize. The award is a tribute to Martha Schwarzkopf, who was one of the first women in Germany to lead a company and also found the Institute for Hair Research.

The award ceremony will take place in Hamburg, Germany, in November 2023. This year’s winners will have the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program with a leading Henkel scientist and will join the network including last year’s award recipients.
