Education is the key to gender equality, economic promotion, better health and much more besides. Access to secondary, tertiary and continuing education is, however, still a distant dream for millions of girls and women. The fellowships and grants offered by GWI and its national affiliates support the research, study and training needed to open doors to quality higher and continuing education for women and girls throughout the world.
National funding offered by GWI affiliates targets all levels of education, from primary and secondary education, to undergraduate studies and postgraduate research, study and training. Read stories from past winners to learn what a difference educational funding can make to women. These awards are made possible through the generous support of GWI members and friends. You can help by making a donation, however large or small.
Graduate Women International offers every three years, on the occasion of its triennum, a number of international fellowships and grants to women graduates for postgraduate research, study and training. The GWI 2019 fellowships programme is now closed. The next GWI fellowships programme will open in the spring of 2021 ahead of the 2022 GWI Triennium.
Many of GWI’s national affiliates offer fellowships, grants, scholarships and stipends to women and girls for primary and secondary education, undergraduate studies and postgraduate research, study and training.
