The Queen's Women Graduates (QWG) is interested in promoting education, especially for women, at local, national and international level.
The scholarship should enhance the educational opportunities of women students, normally those who have had a gap of at least five years since attending school, who are enrolled on and are attending a degree, diploma or certificate award-bearing course at the University.
Applicants should have a low income or be dependent on state benefits.
Degree holders and previous QWG Scholarship holders are not eligible to apply.
The scholarship may be helpful in assisting, for example, with the cost of fees, books, child care or travel. It is available for one academic year only. An award of up to £1,000 will be made.
All awards are subject to funding availability.
The scholarship will be launched in August 2021.
The closing date for applications is normally in October and interviews with the Queen's Women Graduates Panel normally held in November.
