The RANZCOG Fellows' Clinical Research Scholarship was established in 2010 with funds donated by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists to the RANZCOG Research Foundation.
The purpose of the Scholarship is for a clinical-based research study, in any aspect of obstetrics and gynaecology and related disciplines. The research is to be conducted in Australia or New Zealand.
The Scholarship is open to Fellows of the College of less than five years standing or Members of the College seeking to qualify for Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and who are normally resident in Australia or New Zealand.
The Scholarship is for a period of one year.
Applications are to be submitted using the RANZCOG Research Foundation Application Form, together with other information as specified on that form. Applicants and their Supervisor must provide written assurance that resources will be available to ensure completion of the research.
In years where the Scholarship is advertised, the deadline for receipt of applications is 30 June. Applications are assessed by the Grants & Scholarships Committee of the RANZCOG Research Foundation.
The Scholarship is to be undertaken in a hospital, university department or research institute. Time spent undertaking the Scholarship may be recognised for part of the pre-Fellowship training for the FRANZCOG, or towards the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program requirements of the College for Fellows.
The stipend is $40,000.
Following completion of the project, a full report is to be submitted to the Research Foundation by 31 January in the year following completion of the research. This report will be reviewed by the Board of Directors.
The RANZCOG Research Foundation is to be acknowledged in any publication or thesis resulting from work undertaken during the tenure of the Scholarship by stating that the author was the recipient of the RANZCOG Fellows' Clinical Research Scholarship for a particular period.
