FWW Fellowship Awards recognize and support emerging physicians & scientists researching critical women’s health topics. FWW awardees represent a variety of scientific disciplines and personal backgrounds yet share a dedication and aptitude to advance women’s health.

Applicants must currently be pursuing an MD and/or PhD or be engaged in post-doc, fellowship or similar specialty training at a U.S. based academic institution for the calendar year she/he is applying. Only one application per applicant may be submitted; however if not selected as an awardee, individuals may reapply in future years/grant cycles. FWW does not fund sociological research. If you have questions about our funding priorities please review past awardees before contacting us.

Research should be related to FWW priority areas which are:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Leading female cancers
  • Hormones’ role in disease and stage-of-life health concerns
  • Diseases or health concerns that disproportionately afflict women
  • Exploration of gender differences related to the aforementioned topics
