While the types of grants below are planned for the future and not yet available, the FWC continues to seek additional funding to support expanded research priorities, particularly for cervical, uterine, primary peritoneal, vaginal/vulvar cancer research. Additionally, the Foundation is seeking funding for a series of new types of research opportunities:
Post-Doctoral Fellowship Grants
Supporting promising young scientists and clinician/scientists to ensure the next generation of skilled researchers dedicated to gynecologic cancer research.
Career Development Awards
Similar to the NIH CDA, K series awards; awarded to applicants wishing to further develop their careers in gynecologic cancer biomedical, behavioral or clinical research.
Junior investigators join senior investigators for grants lasting two to three years.
Creative and Imaginative research projects showing promise for significant breakthroughs, but have not been sufficiently advanced or developed to receive support through traditional funding channels.
Continued Research Grants
Extension of current, highly successful stimulus or “seed” grant programs to include all gynecologic cancers, and the opportunity for competitive renewals at the conclusion of the one-year research grants.
Please consider applying to become part of an elite group of successful physician-scientists committed to the well-being of those at risk for and affected by gynecologic malignancies.
