Sep 16, 2021

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer is proud to announce the return of the Diversity and Health Equity Research Grant for 2022. Applications are now open for submissions. Research among diverse populations has demonstrated disparities in treatment outcomes, access to care, genetic testing rates, and disease survival across many diseases. The Diversity and Health Equity Research Grant is a one-year project where the funding is available for two $75,000 Research grants.

The purpose of this award is to support research to understand and eliminate inequities in cancer care, specifically related to differential outcomes experienced by patients from underserved or marginalized populations with gynecologic cancer, as well as to increase the representation of underrepresented groups in gynecologic oncology as a strategy to achieve health equity for underserved patients. Those eligible for applying are those who propose a study focused on a marginalized group, or those who identify as being from an under-represented group within the field of research.

This inclusion is sponsored by an unrestricted grant from GSK. Sponsorship excludes editorial input. Content developed by the SGO Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity Committee.
