Advancing the Midwifery Profession Fellowship

The Chief Nursing and Midwifery Office has a commitment to supporting midwifery best practice through research and practice improvement. The focus of the research or project improvement is to have direct application to midwifery practice relevant to WA.

This fellowship, worth up to $20,000 (can be granted to several people in smaller amounts), provides an opportunity for midwives to undertake or complete midwifery research or a practice improvement project.

You need to be able to demonstrate that you are:

  • working towards a higher degree such as a masters or PhD in midwifery, or
  • undertaking a significant project within your current workplace.

The Midwifery Fellowship was established in 2003 by the WA Department of Health to demonstrate recognition of the value and importance of midwives in Western Australia
