Women's Fund Individual Bursaries

The Women’s Fund for Northern Ireland's Individual Bursaries have been set up to fill a gap in funding opportunities for individual women who require a small amount of financial aid to support them towards fulfilling their potential. 

In 2014, the Fund will offer small grants (normally up to a maximum of £500) for individual women aged 18 and over, living in Northern Ireland, who are striving to get into, or back into employment.

Applicants must be affiliated to a constituted community/women’s group and have the support of that organisation.

While not exclusive, the Fund welcomes applications for Bursaries that address the following:

• Personal development & confidence building

• Overcoming barriers to employment or training

• Making the first steps towards re-entering the workplace

Priority will be given to applicants living in deprived / disadvantaged areas

What you can apply for

• Basic training support materials – books for example

• Interview training
