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.

“At the time my grant gave me the freedom to focus on my studies. It meant I could concentrate on finishing my research and writing up my results without fretting too much over how big my overdraft was! The completion of my PhD was essential for my career and my first job as a geoscientist with Shell International in the Hague.”
