FfWG Emergency Grant Applications
Welcome to the FfWG Emergency Grant Application page! If you are eligible, and wish to apply for an Emergency Grant, you will need to fully complete and submit the online Emergency Grant Application Form. Please read the notes on this first page very carefully, as this will save you time and effort in completing the detailed application process which follows.

Closing date for applications Tuesday May 18th 2021
Period for which the grants may be awarded
Please note all applications must be submitted using this page and between the above dates. Applications submitted outside this period or using other methods will not be considered. Each application submitted will automatically generate a unique Grant Application Number.

1. Eligibility
For your application to be considered you must meet all the eligibility conditions which may be found on the 'Am I Eligible' (http://www.ffwg.org.uk/am-i-eligible-.html) page of the site. In brief, to be eligible you must be a woman postgraduate studying in Great Britain at an approved higher education institution (typically a university). Applications may only be made for financial support with living costs (not for fees) where there is genuine financial need to complete the course of study.

2. Information that you will need to provide
To complete the Application Form you will need to provide among other things your personal and educational details, details of current and previous financial support and requirements, and contacts for references. You may find it helpful to print the Application Form screens in order to collate the necessary information before completing the online form. If you do not provide full and accurate information requested in the Application Form that you submit, or if your application does not meet the eligibility conditions, it is likely that your application will not be considered for a grant.

3. Tips for applicants
(i) Quote your Grant Application Number in all communication
(ii) Obtain prior agreement from your referees to supply references
(iii) Ask your referees to include grants@ffwg.org.uk in their email contacts to avoid emails being blocked
(iv) Ensure your Application Form is complete and accurate before you submit it.

4. Our obligations and your obligations
You should note these carefully, as set out in the Application Form. Our obligations include compliance with data protection legislation. Your obligations as an applicant include providing appropriate consents and declarations. Successful applicants are required to provide a progress report to FfWG on conclusion of the study.

5. 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.

6. Emergency Grants are only available for living expenses and not a shortfall in fees.

7. The Emergency Grant Scheme is intended to help those women postgraduate students who are faced with financial difficulties because of unforeseen and unexpected circumstances beyond their control that might prevent the completion of the year’s work.

8. No Grant is likely to exceed £2,500.

9. All Grants are at the discretion of FfWG.
