Foundation for SMFM

Advancing care in pregnancy through research and education

Our Story


The Foundation for SMFM is a 501(c)3 non-profit created to promote the career development of young investigators whose research will advance the field of maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) and improve the care of women with high-risk pregnancies. The first research scholarship was awarded in 1992, and in recent years the Foundation has expanded its award programs to include funding opportunities for members of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) at various career stages and practice settings. The Foundation's programs offer opportunities to improve pregnancy outcomes through research scholarships, global health initiatives, grants for clinical education, and mentorship of the next generation of clinicians and scientists.
