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.

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.
