Help us to support more graduates

The demand for our funding from women postgraduates is high and we are never able to support all the deserving applications that we receive. The amount of money we have available is the only limit to the number of grant we can offer. Our overheads are low, so money donated goes directly to women in financial need.

Give Something Back

If you interested in supporting women’s education or you are a past recipient of one of our awards, please consider donating to the fund to help other women. Maybe you are at a point in your career where you are able to help women fulfil their ambitions. If so, please consider donating to FfWG. If you have time but not money do get in touch and we can discuss other forms of support you may be able to give.

Corporate Partnership

A corporate partnership with 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. Working with, or donating to, FfWG you will have a positive and long lasting impact on women’s lives; the lives of women who have the potential to be leaders in their chosen field and beyond, if only they can complete their education.

Legacies

Make a pledge to support us when making or updating your will. Leaving a legacy will help ensure that we can support women for decades to come. We have named some our awards after previous legacies and women are proud to be able to put on their CV that they have received a named award. Current named awards include the Elizabeth Slater Award and Lady Joan Reid Award.

Ways you could help

Making a donation

All donations, small or large, are greatly appreciated. Perhaps you would like to give back what you received when you were studying to in turn help someone else?

Leave a legacy

A legacy can be a tribute to yourself or a loved one. We would be happy to discuss any legacy donation you might light to make.

Mentoring

You or your staff could offer mentoring to our grant holders during their postgraduate studies and continue supporting them as they enter their chosen careers.

Make us charity of the year

A charity of the year partnership with FfWG is a great way to engage your staff with a worthwhile cause.

“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.”
