Institute student awarded Eila Campbell Scholarship
22 February 2012
The Elia Campbell Scholarship, available to doctoral students in all academic disciplines who are in their third year of research, is one of a number of grants awarded by the British Federation of Women Graduates on the basis of overall academic excellence and winning such an award is a considerable achievement.
The British Federation of Women Graduates (affiliated to the International Federation of University Women) has given awards for academic excellence to female students every year since 1912, when the first ever scholarship was awarded to Caroline Spurgeon, later Professor of English Literature at Bedford College, for her research on Geoffrey Chaucer.
In the years that followed, the funds available have been boosted by donations and bequests from members of the Federation, and scholarships now bear the names of donors. In 2012 the BFWG is having a special appeal for a Centenary Scholarship. Further details are available on the BFWG website here»
