The Medical Women's Federation awards and oversees a variety of grants and prizes throughout the year. For more details please see below:
- Junior Doctors Prize
- Katherine Branson Student Essay Competition

Please note: Funds are available only for qualified Doctors or women studying towards a medical degree leading to GMC registration as a doctor. The trustees regret they are unable to assist those intending to qualify as dentists, vets, midwives or other health professionals or those undertaking intercalated degrees.
This is not intended to be a submission which requires any research, as we realise that Junior Doctors are very busy, but rather something creative. We encourage video submissions, paintings, sculptures, cartoons, songs or anything that might showcase your creative talents!
The winning entry will win £100!
You do not have to be an MWF member to enter this prize... but for £35 a year you might as well become one!
