Other Sources of Funding for Research or Attending Conferences
As much as we would like to fund everyone it simply is not possible. For this reason we include here information on other sources of funding such as travel grants.
Remember to first try to request a travel grant from your Educational University/Institute. You may be pleasantly surprised! They may know of a granting group of which we are unaware. Try also your local Chamber of Commerce and Local Authority. Listed below are a small number of additional groups which provide travel grants aimed specifically at funding women. Please always read carefully the application forms for funding groups. Some require traveling to a specific country, others require the student to be at a specific level of their studies whilst others still require the student to undertake study or research in a specific field.
We hope that you find this information useful.
