Scholarships and Student Funding

British Federation of Women Graduates

The British Federation of Women Graduates (BFWG) has limited funds to make awards to women undertaking their final year of postgraduate research.

An affiliate of the International Federation of University Women, BFWG encourages applicants to become members of the Federation to help promote better links between female graduates throughout the world.


The main criterion for offering Scholarships and Awards is academic excellence, as is a proven ability to carry out independent research.

The National Awards are open to research students of all nationalities who will be studying in Great Britain - England, Scotland and Wales.

Students in Northern Ireland should apply through the Irish Federation of University Women.


Application forms are available directly from the Federation.

The closing date for applications is Friday 24th March 2017.
