The British Federation for Women Graduates scholarship is awarded in competition on the basis of academic excellence, research quality and the ability to communicate this. Every year, calls are made to second year PhD students registered to a University in England, Wales or Scotland.
This year, the BFWG had 388 applications, out of which 18 were shortlisted to come for an interview to London. One of these was Pallavi Bedi.
Pallavi was asked to give an 8 minute presentation (no power point slides or handouts) followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers, and to talk about her academic career, achievements, current research and future aspirations.
Pallavi has now been informed that she has been awarded a Ruth Bowden scholarship. Well done!
The formal award will be made in the autumn.
