Women of Influence Guild Scholarship is open to University of Leicester women graduates undertaking a Post-Graduate course of study at the University.

Selection Criteria

The recipient will be selected for whom the funds would make the most difference in giving a sound financial footing through their studies and to enable to them to take up other opportunities such as course related travel or conferences.

The following students will receive the highest priority:

  • Those who have had significant caring responsibilities for adults, children or siblings prior to or during their studies
  • Students who can show evidence of other personal circumstances which would financially limit their opportunities for postgraduate study at the University of Leicester
