Emergency Grants

Home TBB about FFWG EMERGENCY GRANTS FOUNDATION GRANTS CONTACTS LINKS DPA 1998 ROLL OF HONOUR

An Emergency Grant is not a 'top up' award - all students are short of money.  You must show in your application how you had made provision for your living expenses for the whole academic year.  Emergency Grants are not available for a shortfall in fees.

The Emergency Grant scheme is intended to help those women graduate students who are faced with financial difficulties because of unforeseen and unexpected circumstances beyond their control which might prevent the completion of their year's work.

In 2014 applications will be considered twice a year: in March and November.  

The closing date for the March round of grants is Thursday 6 February 2014.  These forms are no longer available.

The closing date for the November round of Emergency Grants is Monday 6 October 2014.  Forms available from 1 August 2014.

 

These are one off payments to assist with the completion of an academic yearís work. No grant is likely to exceed £2,500. All our grants are offered on a needs basis and therefore not all grants will be for £2,500.  

Women graduates from Britain and overseas are eligible to apply

There is no upper age limit
