Wellbeing of Women is inviting applications to our Entry-level Research Scholarships, Research Training Fellowships and NEW Postdoctoral Research Fellowships. We are delighted to continue our research partnership with the Royal College of Midwives and the Burdett Trust for Nursing and are also offering dedicated Entry-level Research Scholarships for Midwives.

These awards fund the brightest and best future stars in obstetrics, gynaecology, midwifery or with a focus on women’s reproductive health. Research can be in basic science, clinical, or translational research including explanatory and feasibility studies in one of the following areas:

  1. Pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period
  2. Gynaecological cancers
  3. General wellbeing surrounding women’s health issues

All our awards are open to applicants studying or employed in the UK or Ireland.

Entry-level Research Scholarships / Entry-level Research Scholarships for Midwives

Entry-level Research Scholarships are to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable candidates to be exposed to a research environment, or to obtain pilot data for bids for definitive funding. Applicants will normally be new to the research discipline and would not previously have been involved in substantial or funded research projects. Scholarships provide a single payment, up to a maximum of £20,000.

Research Training Fellowships

The purpose of these awards is to encourage medical graduates to pursue a career in academic medicine. Fellowships are awarded for up to three years and cover the cost of a full-time salary per annum for Specialty Registrar grade (or equivalent). Research Training Fellows will normally be expected to enrol for a higher degree. The upper limit of this award is £250,000.

NEW! Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

The purpose of these awards is to support research-active Lecturers to gather data and strengthen their bids for longer-term substantive funding. Applicants must have been awarded an MD or PhD within the last 7 years and be employed by the NHS, HEI or on a postdoctoral research fellowship with at least 50 percent of their time funded to undertake research. The upper limit of this award is £30,000.
