Graduate Women International (previously the International Federation of University Women) offers a number of international fellowships and grants to women graduates for postgraduate research, study and training.
Who can apply?
GWI fellowships and grants are open free of charge to women PhD candidates only who are members of GWI, either through a national federation or association or through independent membership. GWI fellowships and grants are open to non-member PhD candidates only providing they pay an administration fee of CHF 50 for women in developing countries and CHF 100 for women in industrialised countries. Students in any branch of learning may apply but their programme must demonstrate relevance to GWI’smission, aims and objectives. Fellowships are offered for the second and subsequent years of a doctoral programme. Applicants are required to submit proof of completion of the first year of the programme by the time of the closing date for applications. The awards may be used in any country other than the one in which the applicant was educated and other than the one in which the applicant habitually resides. For example: A New Zealand national or long-time resident enrolled in a New Zealand doctoral programme: Would not be eligible if her research is to be carried out in New Zealand. Would be eligible if her research or part of her research is to be carried out in another country. A Kenyan national enrolled in a New Zealand doctoral programme. Would be eligible if she has done her undergraduate studies in a country other than New Zealand, regardless of where her research is to be carried out. Would not be eligible if she has done her undergraduate work in New Zealand and her doctoral research will be carried out in New Zealand. Would be eligible if she has done her undergraduate work in New Zealand and her doctoral research or part of her research will be carried out in a country other than New Zealand or her home country.
