G-Research Women in Quant Finance Network: Grant Programme
Are you a female PhD student or postdoc in a quantitative discipline? Do you need help funding something that will help your research? If so, we can help: every month we give away two grants worth £500 to two female researchers to support them in their studies, research, and/or career.
We’re providing this grant exclusively to members of our Women in Quant Finance (WiQF) network, as we look to support women in our industry. (Membership of our WiQF network is open exclusively to attendees of our Women in Quant Finance events, please see our events page for more information)
How to apply
To apply, just send the following items to firstname.lastname@example.org :
- Your CV
- A breakdown of what the grant will be put towards e.g. accommodation/travel/conference entry/other expenses
- A short letter from your PhD advisor (if you’re a PhD student), or directly from you (for PhD/MSc holders) describing what you would need the grant for, and why this would be beneficial for your studies, research, or career
Please note that each WiQF network member will only be eligible for a maximum of one grant per calendar year.
When to apply?
Applications must be received by the 1st of each month, and we’ll let recipients know the outcome by the 14th of the same month. (If either of these dates falls on a weekend, we’ll let you know the Monday after instead)
The grant programme will open for applications in April 2021, with the first grants awarded in May.
