Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies for a range of educational programs and research projects addressing health issues specific to women. Applicants must take an eligibility quiz and submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. Proposals are invited for research on designated topics that are expected to have a significant impact on the health and well-being of women.

PBF is currently funding grants for research projects that align with one or more of PBF’s four key areas of focus.  If your research project does not fit squarely within one of PBF’s four key areas of focus but has a significant impact on women’s sexual health, PBF will consider such research projects.

By focusing on the following four key areas that have a dramatic impact on women’s sexual health, PBF is able to provide support and fund research where it is needed most, to help improve the lives of the highest number of women:

  • Vulvovaginal Pain Disorders
  • Impact of Perimenopause and Menopause on Sexual Health
  • Intimacy-Related Sexual Dysfunction After Cancer Treatment
  • Libido and Sexual Desire
