Further Information

Applications will only be considered from women who have been resident in the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands for at least three years.

Successful applicants will be asked to sign a loan agreement and supply a guarantor.

The loan is paid by BACS once the beneficiary has confirmed that they have commenced their studies.

Beneficiaries are expected to commence repayment of the loan within 3 months of securing employment.  Full repayment of the loan is due within 2 years of commencing repayments.

Beneficiaries will be asked to supply a short update report once they have secured employment which may be used anonymously in FfW publicity material.

Our interest-free loan programme is a competitive process and therefore receipt of an application form does not guarantee the award of a loan.

Closing date for applications is 31 May 2021
