BFWG Scholarships 2017

BFWG (British Federation of Women Graduates) founded in 1907

BFWG awards scholarships annually to women studying for doctorates at British universities. Whilst described as Scholarships, these awards are in effect prizes for outstanding academic excellence as determined from information given on application forms, in referee reports and, for shortlisted candidates, at interview.  Awards are given out in early autumn (October/November) of the relevant year and awards usually range between £2,500 and £6,000.

 The 2017 BFWG scholarships competition is now open.

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

Please go to www.bfwg.org.uk and look under Scholarships to find out details of the application process and of eligibility.  The competition is open to women doctoral students (PhD, DPhil or equivalent) at British universities (not Northern Ireland) who began full time doctoral studies between September 1st 2014 and October 31st 2015 (or the part time equivalent) are eligible to apply and who will not be submitting their thesis before the end of February 2018.  

 In 2012 we celebrated one hundred years since BFWG (originally the British Federation of University Women) first gave an award to a woman postgraduate to support her research.  Now in our second century of award-giving, we look forward each year to the variety and quality of the applications we receive.

Saturday June 10th 2017at BFWG HQ, 4 Mandeville Courtyard, 142 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 4NB

All welcome

BFWG holds a Research Presentations Day each year at which women postgraduate students are invited to give short presentations of their research work to a general audience.  A prize of £100 is offered for the presentation judged ‘best’ in terms of quality of presentation and ability to communicate the subject to an educated but general audience.  Those interested in making a presentation should go to www.bfwg.org.uk to download an abstract submission form.  Abstracts should be submitted to rpd@bfwg.org.uk.

Closing date for abstracts is Friday April 28th 2017

It may be necessary to make a selection from abstracts submitted if there are too many entries for the time available.  Please note: BFWG is not able to pay travel or other expenses.

All undergraduates, postgraduates, members of BFWG and others who are interested will be very welcome to attend the RPD even if they do not wish to submit a paper.  There is no charge for bona fide students, whether or not they are presenting a paper, but there is a charge of £10 on the door for others.  (A sandwich lunch is provided).  The Research Presentations Day is usually a good opportunity to meet other postgraduate women students and to look objectively at the presentation styles of others.  It can be a useful learning experience and an opportunity for networking. 

If you wish to attend the day please contact: Dr Elizabeth Poskitt: rpd@bfwg.org.uk if possible before June 3rd 2017 .
