Wellbeing of Women Entry Level Scholarships

  • DeadlineDeadline: 11 July 2024
  • London, All EnglandLondon, All England


Entry Level Scholarships (ELS) fund pre-doctoral candidates up to £20,000 for research lasting normally up to one year. Funds are for directly incurred research costs and may include a salary contribution. The research must be undertaken in the UK.

Scholarships will be considered for basic science, clinical, and translational research, including explanatory or feasibility studies and systematic reviews across any area of women’s reproductive and gynaecological health, that seeks to improve the health of women, girls and babies.

Awards are intended to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable graduates to be exposed to a research environment and to obtain pilot data that will enhance an application for a research fellowship (PhD or MD). Applicants would normally be new to the research discipline and will not previously have been heavily involved in substantial or funded research projects.

An ELS is not intended as a ‘top-up’ for existing grants. Its primary purpose is to support a single individual at an early stage of their research career.
