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.

“Without the grant I would basically be homeless by now. The grant has been essential for supplementing our cost of living and covering larger costs, such as buying heating oil. However, the greater impact feels as though it has given me a sense of stability and knowledge that I can support my family despite our unstable environment. When you are supported in this way, you are able to breathe a sigh of relief and believe that attaining your dreams, those you’ve worked so hard for, are a possibility.”
