Grants of $25,000 to USA MD and PhD investigators at accredited academic institutions or nonprofit medical research institutions for short-term, small research projects on medical issues that affect women.

Eligible research topics must be related to the Foundation's priority areas which include:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Leading female cancers
- Hormones’ role in disease and stage-of-life health concerns, like pregnancy and menopause
- Diseases or health concerns that disproportionately afflict women
- Exploration of gender differences related to the aforementioned topics

This may include disease prevention or treatment; clarification of gender differences; and/or address quality of life concerns.

FWW favors research proposals that have direct clinical application in preventing and/or treating disease; studies with the promise of yielding results that will attract larger sources of funding for advancing study; and influencing long-term research and clinical care directions. FWW favors focused, quality study design.
