OUR 2015 TRAINING GRANT ROUND IS NOW OPEN!
You can now apply for the following awards:
1. Research Training Fellowships
The purpose of these awards is to encourage medical graduates to pursue a career in academic medicine. The upper limit of this award is £200,000.
2. Entry Level Scholarships with the British Maternal & Fetal Medicine Society
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. Scholarships are a single payment up to a maximum of £20,000
For the two awards above we would hope that applicants will be based in a department which has at least a silver Athena Swan award. This will in the future become a requirement of our awards.
3. Student Elective Bursaries
Wellbeing of Women awards a minimum of ten bursaries of £1000 each towards the expenses of medical and midwifery student electives every year.

Wellbeing of Women is delighted to announce that we will be working on an exciting partnership with New Always Discreet.
Research suggests that one-third of women over the age of 18 have experienced incontinence at some point in their adult lives.
“At Wellbeing of Women we share New Always Discreet’ s desire to improve the lives of women suffering from Adult Incontinence, through raising awareness of the issue and breaking taboos around the subject. We are delighted to be working with them. Sensitive bladder problems can be extremely debilitating and many women suffer in silence. More awareness and research is needed so women can be freed from these problems” Liz Campbell, CEO, Wellbeing of Women
