We are thrilled to announce for the second year in a row, our partnership with Wellbeing of Women(WoW) to co-fund one Entry Level Scholarship (ELS) to provide a single candidate with up to £20,000 for research lasting up to one year. This is an exciting opportunity that enables us to support a healthcare professional at an early stage of their research career.

The Scholarship

The award will fund a pre-doctoral researcher in a basic science, clinical or translational research project in SRH, to improve evidence-based practice and ultimately lead to better outcomes for women and girls. It is intended to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable professionals involved in SRH to be exposed to a research environment and to obtain pilot data that could enhance an application for a research fellowship (PhD or MD).

Funds are for directly incurred research costs and may include a salary contribution. Applicants do not have to be members of the FSRH, but successful candidates are expected to join us as an Affiliate Member on receipt of their award.

We are looking for applicants to be researching in-line with the aims of the FSRH Hatfield Vision. Project proposals aligned to access to abortion services, pre-conception care, reducing unplanned pregnancies, or access to long acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) fitting are welcome.

How to apply

You can find out more about the scholarship, download the application forms and read further guidance on the Wellbeing of Women website.

The deadline to submit your application is Thursday 11 July 2024 at 13:00. Application outcomes will be announced in October 2024.

Funding for the awards will start from December 2024.
