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 Graduate Women International and its national affiliates, such as our own BFWG, support the research, study and training needed to open doors to quality higher and continuing education for women and girls throughout the world.

BFWG can be justly proud of its contribution to this global endeavour.  The first discussions on opportunities for post-graduate research for women started as soon as the Federation had been formed in 1907 and led to an appeal for funds for the award of a “prize fellowship to a woman who had proved her capacity for research by work already produced or on its way to publication”.
