Action on Pre-eclampsia’s Walker Redman Award aims to support post-doctoral students’ research, knowledge and understanding of pre-eclampsia. The Walker Redman scholarship programme was founded as a way to support students and help them over the financial ‘finish line’ and to make life a little easier.

How to apply?

The Walker Redman Award is open to two post-doctoral students each year. Submissions for 2024 are now open and there is a possible £500 for two students towards relevant research projects.

The award is intended to be support, not to fund every part of their plans. The awarding committee will be looking at the realistic nature of the proposals, the deliverability, what support they have and the possibility of putting something new and original into the jigsaw of how we solve pre-eclampsia.
