Research Awards

FWW Research Awards target early funding for small, short-term studies with promise for improving medical knowledge in women’s health with particular emphasis on cardiovascular disease, top female cancers, the role of hormones in disease and stage-of-life health issues such as pregnancy and menopause and topics disproportionately affecting women. This may include disease prevention and/or treatment; identifying gender differences; and/or improving quality of life concerns.

Selections will be announced by year’s end.

  • Lead investigator must be an MD and/or PhD with faculty appointment at an accredited U.S. medical institution.
  • The affiliated medical institution must accept this award on the awardees behalf with no administrative costs deducted. 100% of the award amount must go to the research study directly.
  • FWW targets early funding for small, short-term research in a range of women’s health topics with emphasis on cardiovascular disease, top female cancers, hormones’ role in disease and/or stage-of-life health concerns like pregnancy and menopause, and topics disproportionately affecting women. This may include disease prevention or treatment; clarification of gender differences; and/or address quality of life concerns.
  • Non-overlapping financial support and existing or pending financial support necessary to complete research if FWW monies are being used as partial or supplemental funds.

Process: FWW’s Medical Advisory Board will review letters of inquiry submissions. If more information is necessary, a fuller application may be required. Final awardees will be selected before year’s end; the exact decision date will depend on the number of submissions received.
