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 award of a Foundation Grant was tremendously important to me. I self-funded my PhD, largely through the generosity of my parents, but I supplemented this through part-time work in the college bar and some teaching, and applied to each and every source of funding I could identify. The Foundation Grant was one of a number of awards I received in my third year. As well as the obvious assistance it provided, I took it as a vote of confidence in my abilities and potential at a time of considerable anxiety and self-doubt.”
