    IFUW International Fellowships and Grants
    The International Federation of University Women offers a limited number of international fellowships and grants to women graduates for postgraduate research, study and training.
    IFUW’s 2011/2012 competition is now open.
    The fellowships and grants offered are for research, study and training
    to be carried out between 1 April 2011 to 31 December 2012.
    Who can apply?

    • IFUW fellowships and grants are open only to women graduates who are members of IFUW’s national federations and associations
      and to IFUW Independent Members
      .

    • Would be eligible if she has done her undergraduate studies in a country other than New Zealand, regardless of where her research is to be carried out
    • Would not be eligible if she has done her undergraduate work in New Zealand and her doctoral research will be carried out in New Zealand
