WHRI Internal Funding Opportunities

CLOSED, next cycle launching summer 2022

This year, the WHRI launched its Strategic Framework for Trainees and Mentorship which aims to expand capacity for women’s health research through initiatives that support the next generation of women’s health scholars. To this end, the WHRI is launching the Graduate and Fellowship Research Award in Women’s Health, a funding opportunity specific to our trainee community. This award is intended to provide salary support to WHRI-affiliated graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are engaged in women’s and/or newborn health research and who do not currently hold major competitive salary awards.
