Foundation for SMFM
Advancing care in pregnancy through research and education

We are grateful to all who contribute to our mission and invest in the future of maternal-fetal medicine - SMFM members and their institutions and practices, corporate partners, and private donors and foundations. 


About Us

The Foundation for SMFM is a 501(c)3 non-profit created to promote the career development of young investigators whose research will advance the field of maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) and improve the care of individuals with high-risk pregnancies.

The first research scholarship was awarded in 1992, and in recent years the Foundation has expanded its award programs to include funding opportunities for members of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) at various career stages and practice settings. The Foundation's programs offer opportunities to improve pregnancy outcomes through research and clinical training grants, global health initiatives, and mentoring the next generation of clinicians and scientists.
