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.

“The grant was used on rent for an additional term of accommodation in London as I have a disability that would have made travelling to London for the work almost impossible. Due to the funding I secured University housing close to the department and was able to use the lab as needed.”
