Reproductive Health Mini-Sabbatical Grants


In 2019 and 2020, the Foundation for SMFM offered a reproductive health-specific funding opportunity for a short-term research project or clinical training experience in reproductive health for women who are at high risk of maternal mortality and/or severe maternal morbidity.

These grants were one component of the Reproductive Health Project for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, an initiative with the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) to integrate family planning and reproductive health care services into maternal-fetal medicine subspecialist practice to reduce the rate of maternal morbidity and mortality among high-risk women in the United States.

This program will not be offered in 2021.
