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.
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.
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.

“The grant I received was extremely necessary. It went towards funding my Cambridge subsistence. My major funding at the time was from South Africa and the Rand had devalued strongly making it difficult for me to make ends meet. Without the grant I would have had to finish my thesis back home, which would not have made life very easy. I was always very fond of my grant for what it represented (I am a gender studies scholar) and because it allowed me to eat!”Dr Natasha Erlank
