Foundation Grants for women in Great Britain


    FfWG offers Emergency Grants to graduate women who face an unforeseen financial crisis (not with their fees) whilst engaged in study or research at an approved institution of higher education in Great Britain.

    Eligibility

    The criteria for awarding Grants are the proven needs of the applicant and her academic calibre. Competition is very great so not all qualifying applicants will receive a Grant. Grants are offered on a needs basis therefore not all grants will be for the maximum sum quoted for the grant.

    Foundation Grants (Terms on which Grants are given)
    • Women graduates from UK and overseas are eligible to apply.
    • They must be studying or intend to study in Great Britain and in their final fee paying or writing up year at postgraduate or postdoctoral level.
    • Any subject or field of study will be considered.
    • There is no upper age limit.
    • A grant will only be given for the final year of a PhD or DPhil.
    • Evidence of ability to pay fees is required.
    • Students reading for a part-time PhD or DPhil will be eligible to apply from their third year onwards.
    • The Grants will be a contribution towards living expenses for one year’s academic study or research.
    • The amount of the Foundation Grant awarded will be decided by FfWG.
    • Grant holders must submit a written report at the end of the academic year for which the grant was awarded.
    Emergency Grants (Terms on which Grants are given)
    • Women Graduates from Great Britain and overseas are eligible to apply.
