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 received my Foundation Grant as I neared the completion of my PhD. It was extremely helpful to me as I was able to complete my thesis within my desired time frame. After completing my PhD, I enjoyed six years working in Cambridge’s thriving IT industry. Although few pure mathematicians can claim to have used their research outside of academia,I was delighted to be given the opportunity to work for Spatial Technology Ltd. I continue to work for them as a contractor back home in New Zealand.”Dr Audrey Tan Hayes

A corporate partnership with Funds for Women Graduates (FfWG) could bring real benefits to your business through appropriate publicity and positive contacts with some of the most talented women at British universities. It would also help us to maintain or expand the level of our annual grant budget.
