Grants For Midwives

Wellbeing of Women and the Royal College of Midwives are delighted to announce research grants available in 2015 for midwives

Entry-Level Research Scholarships are to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable trainees to be exposed to a research environment, or to obtain pilot data for bids for definitive funding. Applicants will normally be within the first few years of graduation, and would not previously have been involved in substantial research projects. The Midwives International Fellowship Award is to enable midwives to further develop research interests in midwifery, maternity services, pregnancy, childbirth and women’s health from an international perspective. The applicant(s) may be experienced researchers or new to the research discipline. Both awards are up to £20,000 and opento RCM midwives who hold full membership status and current registration with the NMC. Read more and apply here.


The Annual Cambridge Lunch in Aid of Wellbeing of Women

Held annually in March. This year The Cambridge Lunch will be held on Monday 2nd March 2015 at The Hilton Doubletree, Granta Place, Cambridge, CB2 1RT.
We welcome Sir Marcus Setchell to speak about medical advances in his lifetime and give us insight into his facinating career.
Tickets cost £35 and can be bought here.



We invite applications for projects in basic science, clinical or translational research in the areas of Pregnancy and Childbirth, including pre-term birth, miscarriage and fertility, Quality of Life issues such as menopause, incontinence and prolapse, sexual health, menstrual disorders and endometriosis and Gynaecological Cancers.

This year we have two special calls: one for research into the menopause and one for research into amniotic fluid embolism. We have dedicated funding which will only be spent in these two areas.

This does not impact on our general grant call, which is open as normal.  Full details of how to apply can be found here.
