About Us

We are a group of graduate women committed to providing postgraduate opportunities for study and research to women by the provision of Fellowships.  Fellowships Fund Inc (FFI) is a separately incorporated group of members of Graduate Women Qld www.gwq.org.au (formerly AFUWQ) that administers the Programme. Fellowships are funded from the investment built up over 50 years from the profits of our academic regalia business that hired and sold academic dress to universities and other institutions in Queensland.  FFI provides several one-year and one three-year Fellowships each year.  We have also funded two 3-year Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (FFI Qld Graduate Women award) at The University of Queensland.
