Forktip Women’s Innovation Scholarship

Support for women around the world to further their education and careers

Please note: We have notified the 2017 scholarship winners and prizes have been distributed to our scholarship winners. 

We received a very large number of scholarship applications for the 2017 scholarship and would like to thank everyone who participated. It took us a little bit of extra time to go through all the applications.

There were many worthy candidates and it was hard to choose just a few. Once again thankyou to everyone who applied and we wish all success in their future careers.

We are looking at ways to restrict the number of applications and are planning to offer a new, improved scholarship for 2018.  Scholarship applications for 2018 are not currently open just yet.  Thankyou for your patience while we finalise details. Updates will be posted on this page.
