OUR 2015 TRAINING GRANT ROUND IS NOW OPEN!

You can now apply for the following awards:

1. Research Training Fellowships

The purpose of these awards is to encourage medical graduates to pursue a career in academic medicine. The upper limit of this award is £200,000.

2. Entry Level Scholarships with the British Maternal & Fetal Medicine Society

Entry-Level Research Scholarships are to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable trainees to be exposed to a research environment, or to obtain pilot data for bids for definitive funding. Scholarships are a single payment up to a maximum of £20,000

For the two awards above we would hope that applicants will be based in a department which has at least a silver Athena Swan award. This will in the future become a requirement of our awards.

3. Student Elective Bursaries

Wellbeing of Women awards a minimum of ten bursaries of £1000 each towards the expenses of medical and midwifery student electives every year.

You can read more about these awards and download application documents here

 

KILIMANJARO CLIMB 2015

The climb will take place from 21 Feb - 1 March 2015 (5 days out of the office) and will take the Rongai route which offers a much more gradual ascent and higher success rate (e.g. 100% success last year. Timelines are departure from the UK to Tanzania on a Friday evening - climb throughout the week, summit early on Saturday morning, back on the plane to the UK on Sunday evening.

No previous climbing experience required - just a good level of fitness and strong mental strength to put one foot in front of the other on summit day. We use a highly reputable western operator with qualified guides who offer high quality accommodation, food with extensive local suppor and you can rent equipment for the climb if required.

Places are allocated first come, first served, so do get in touch with Sophie at sedgerly-harris@wellbeingofwomen.org.uk

 

THE PURPLE PANTS PROMENADE

Walk together for a better tomorrow.

Our supporters in the South of France have organised The Purple Pants Promenade, a sponsored walk in aid Wellbeing of Women and local charity, Défi de Femmes. The Purple Pants Promenade will take place on the evening of the 27th September 2014 in Antibes, France and looks like it will be a very special challenge event.

The walking circuit, around the Antibes athletics stadium and Port Vauban, will be completed as many times as possible within the limit of the three hour window and will help raise awareness in the region about the vital medical research that Wellbeing of Women funds.

If you are interested in finding out more information in order to sponsor the event, take part, or donate, please email Meg meg@ppp-riviera.org
