About Fellowships

UGSA  partners with the RANZCOG Women’s Health Foundation to administer the UGSA research scholarship.

Each year, the RANZCOG Women’s Health Foundation offers a number of research and travel scholarships to those practising in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology. The RANZCOG Research Grants Committee assess applications using a process modelled on the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) process with revisions to ensure, as much as possible, that early-career support for high-quality researchers with a commitment to women’s health is promoted through the selection process.
