GWI’s fellowships programme makes it possible for women graduates to complete exciting research in many important fields. For example, they are analysing the impact of global trends on women and children, investigating women’s health issues and assessing educational subjects. Many are working in areas directly related to GWI priority interests. Their studies will have far-reaching benefits, for their own careers, and for the communities and countries from which they come.
