Barakat Post Doctoral Research Scholarship:

The Post-Doctoral Research Scholarship is intended to enable a senior Muslim scholar to spend from October to June in Oxford to carry out a specific programme of research or prepare such research for publication.

During this time the successful Scholar will be housed in the Khalili Research Centre in Oxford, where they will be allocated a desk and workstation. Many of the offices of the Academic Advisory Committee members are located at the KRC. It is also a teaching centre, and a cultural hive of activity for lectures and seminars relevant to the art and culture of the Middle East. The KRC forms part of the Oriental Institute of the University of Oxford, and although the Barakat Scholars are not part of the University during their stay, they are allowed many University privileges such as use of the University libraries and access to relevant lectures and seminars.

There is a weekly graduate seminar at the KRC during term-time, which Scholars are invited to join, and to which they are asked to contribute. There is also an informal tea after this seminar, where Scholars will have the opportunity to meet fellow post-graduates and researchers, as well as staff.

Travel to relevant events, activities or conferences during each tenure is obviously welcomed. However, Scholars are expected to be normally resident in Oxford for the duration of the Scholarship, and participation in weekly seminars during the Oxford term time will be greatly welcomed.

The Post-Doctoral Scholarship is designed to be an opportunity, or a platform, for scholars to conduct their research in Oxford, using relevant Oxford resources as appropriate. It is obviously up to each individual to make of this opportunity what they will – The Barakat Trust cannot provide a taught course of study or of meetings and contacts for each scholar, nor supervise their work. We are merely facilitators – and we hope that each recipient will make best use of the exciting opportunities that conducting research in Oxford will bring.

Mama Cash Fund

Each year, Mama Cash supports about 100 courageous groups, organisations, networks and women’s funds that are  led by women, girls and trans people. Our grantees are at the forefront of the fight for the rights of those who have most often been ignored or rejected not only by society but also by more mainstream funders.

Mama Cash Women’s Fund:

Mama Cash is helping to build a strong global architecture of women's funds so that local and regional women's movements can grow in scale, influence, and collective power. The women's funds we support:
•    build the emerging movements of the most invisible and marginalised women and girls
•    develop local leadership, activist networks, and donor communities
•    bring international attention to local and regional issues
•    respond quickly to urgent local needs
•    build the infrastructure of the international women's movement

Mama Cash provides step-up support to a select number of women's funds. Step-up support includes:
•        financial support to help women's funds progress to a new stage of development
•        partnering to develop policies, procedures, best practices, and to build local donor communities
•        collaborating to share learnings and fundraising strategies
•        using Mama Cash funding to leverage new income from non-women's fund donors

Global Fund for Women invests in women’s groups that advance the human rights of women and girls.

First-time grant awards generally range from $5,000 to $13,000 per year. We value local expertise and believe that women themselves know best how to determine their needs and propose solutions for lasting change. To maximize our impact in defending and expanding hard won gains in women’s rights, Global Fund for Women’s grantmaking will focus on three critical areas:

Global Fund for Women receives over 2,500 proposals each year and is able to award about 500 grants annually. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to provide funding to all the groups that meet our criteria. We do, however, give priority to women’s groups that might particularly benefit from our support. Please review a full list of our priorities before applying for a grant.
