Endowment for Education and Research

The IMS has a well-established history of funding endeavours that promote education and research. This has included the Research Bursary, World Congress Travel Bursaries, and monetary prizes for IMS Awards. The Board of Directors recognizes the important role that funding plays in supporting vital initiatives to increase awareness and knowledge of menopause and midlife women’s health. We also recognize that we are in a position to enhance our contribution to the field by generating and awarding more funding.

Therefore, the IMS Endowment for Education and Research (EER) was established on 4th August 2022, with the Young Scholars Bursary for the 18th World Congress on Menopause in Lisbon, Portugal as the first funded project. The EER is a vehicle through which the IMS provides funding for initiatives that support the delivery of the IMS mission: To work globally to promote and support access to best practice health care for women through their menopause transition and post-reproductive years, enabling them to achieve optimal health and well-being.

In addition to the IMS’s own financial contribution to the EER, we aim to secure unrestricted funds via a variety of sources, including trusts and foundations grants, individual and major donor contributions, and fundraising campaigns. In addition to generating funds, this brings broader opportunities to grow support for our mission and build partnerships.
