As one of its core strategies, the Society of Family Planning seeks to build and support a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and multidisciplinary community of all engaged in the science of abortion and contraception. Providing early-career research support to graduate-level trainees is an important step to actualizing this strategy. To this end, they are offering the Emerging Scholars in Family Planning grant.
