WoW and Peaches Entry Level Scholarship Opportunity

Enabling professionals to develop research interests in womb cancer

The Wellbeing of Women and Peaches Womb Cancer Trust Partnership Entry Level Scholarships (ELS) provide single candidates with 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.

The award will fund successful candidates in a basic science, clinical or translational research project into womb cancer. Projects should focus on improving survival, quality of life and care for those suffering from womb cancer.

Awards are intended to provide ‘pump-priming’ funds to enable professionals involved, or with an interest, in womb cancer 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.

Submission deadline: 11 July 2024 at 1pm

Application outcome: October 2024

Awards start: from December 2024
