Applications for the 2023 BFWG Academic Doctoral Awards are now open!

The competition for the British Federation of Women Graduates (BFWG) annual academic awards is now open!  

One of BFWG’s main aims is to support women studying in higher education, to advance their work and create opportunities for career development. The British Federation of Women Graduates academic awards are for women who will be in, or going into, their third year of doctoral research, or part time equivalent, at the time when the awards are given out in the autumn of each year.

The BFWG Scholarship fund awards for academic excellence (for students in the second half of their programme of study). FfWG supports on the basis of financial need, including emergency grants for graduates engaged in study or research at an approved institution of higher education in Great Britain. Both charities fund students of any nationality who are studying at universities in England, Scotland and Wales. 

For further information see their website BFWG – The British Federation of Women Graduates or email

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 3rd March 2023.
