Funding the Future for Women

Grants, bursaries and fellowships available for women graduates studying in Great Britain

Funds for Women Graduates (FfWG) is an educational charity whose objective is promoting the higher education and wider learning of women graduates. We do this by awarding grants to assist with the living expenses of women postgraduate students, typically in the final year of work towards a PhD or equivalent degree.

“I am proud to be supported by Funds for Women Graduates for my research, which includes the soon to be published first extended study of the processes of writing with work-related upper limb disorder, as both this condition and my rare developmental disability to which it is secondary, are particularly prevalent, under supported and underdiagnosed in women. This work would not have been possible without Funds for Women Graduates’ support.”
