Grants and prize
For the past seven years, the Foundation has awarded a prize to the person, persons, work team or institution whose career or line of research continues to make a relevant contribution in the field of health sciences, particularly in the field of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine.
This is an international award, and applications must be submitted by schools, cultural research institutes, universities, scientific societies, and other institutions and personalities. Applications submitted by individual seeking the award for themselves or for organisations they represent will be rejected.
Among their merits, nominated applicants must be able to demonstrate optimal exemplarity and the transcendence of their work. The prize may not be awarded posthumously nor to any members of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation.
Grants are intended for young scientists with an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in health sciences, to help finance the completion of their research projects in the fields of: General Gynaecology, Maternal Foetal Medicine, Gynaecological Oncology, Reproductive Medicine and Basic Research in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
The projects presented must not have won prior awards or have any conflicts of interest. Applications will be reviewed by a jury composed of members of the Scientific Committee of the Foundation and prominent figures in the field of health sciences. Once the research grant has been awarded, the person or investigating team has two years to carry out the project. The winner must then submit a comprehensive project report specifying the conclusions reached.
