WHD AWARDS PROGRAM

Four annual awards have been created to provide members with financial assistance to advance their training in women’s health and/or pelvic health. 

Every Congress year, we will offer two student awards to help student members attend Congress.

 

The WHD also has dedicated money to support regional initiatives. Members interested in the regional initiatives funds can contact the WHD treasurer for further details.

Applications

Award applications are open every year between February and March 31st. Applications must be submitted online through the links provided below.  Awards are given to help offset the cost of courses or conferences taken in the year prior to the application year. 
Applicants must be paying members of the WHD and who are currently practicing in the area of women’s health or pelvic health (including children and male pelvic health). If the course or conference is not specifically in the area of women’s health or pelvic health, the applicant must clearly demonstrate how the course/conference will advance their service delivery to a women’s/pelvic health population. Preference will be given to applicants who have been paying members of the WHD for at least three years
