We look forward to receiving your application!

Apply for research grants

Once a year, Lena Wäppling's Foundation announces funding of scientific research in gynecology, primarily to diagnose and treat ovarian cancer. Applications can be sent in during the period from October 1st to December 15th each year. 

Research grants

The number of grants awarded can vary. One grant per year is awarded to a junior researcher (max 5 years since PhD at the time of application). Thanks to our generous donors, there has been a positive growth in the total grant sum. In 2024, 1.2 million SEK could be awarded.

Medical expertise

The Scientific Committee of the Swedish Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology is responsible for the medical review of applications received and submits a recommendation to the Board of Lena Wäppling's Foundation for decisions on allocation of funds. 

Decisions about allocation of funds will be made by April 30th. Questions and applications can be sent to
