Funding for women
Soroptimist International GB & Ireland offers Diamond Education Grants to women to update their skills after breaks from employment, or to acquire new skills. Grants are made towards course fees or books and equipment, not towards living expenses.
The Fund for Women Graduates offers four different types of grant. It provides Foundation Grants for final year PhDs and DPhils and Emergency Grants for graduate women facing financial crisis during their study/research. The fund also offers a Theodora Bosanquet Bursary (TBB) for a short summer-stay in London for English Literature students, and a grant of £6,000 towards living expenses to encourage advanced scholarship and original research relevant to International Federation of University Women (IFUW). There is no upper age limit and applicants do not have to be British, but must be studying at a British institution. Any field of study will be considered.
The Society was founded to encourage women towards economic independence through employment. It offers interest-free loans of around £1,000 towards the cost of training for professional, commercial or technical work. Loans are repaid by monthly instalment.
These grants are to "help women of the British Isles whose intention it is to fit themselves for some profession or career likely to be of use or value to the community for which special training is required".
