The Foundation for Women’s Wellness (FWW) is accepting applications to support small, short-term studies with promise for improving medical knowledge in cardiovascular disease, leading female cancers, the role of hormones in disease and stage-of-life health issues such as pregnancy and menopause and diseases disproportionately affecting women. FWW favors research proposals that have direct clinical application in preventing and/or treating disease; studies with the promise of yielding results that will attract larger sources of funding for advancing study; and influencing long-term research directions in its field. Only one application per applicant (i.e. Principal Investigator) may be submitted. Eligible lead investigators must be an MD and/or PhD with faculty appointment of investigator, assistant professor or higher at an accredited US academic institution or similar. FWW does not fund sociological or population-related research. Applications should only be for studies that are exploring basic, clinical or epidemiological lines of inquiry. Non-overlapping financial support and existing or pending financial support necessary to complete research must be in place if FWW monies are being used as partial or supplemental funds. Indirect costs are not allowed. The award is made to the institution, not the individual. Two awards will be made.

Application Deadline: June 20, 2017. Award notifications made by December 2017. Application Guidelines for the award: http://thefww.org/research-awards/.
