Queen's Women Graduates (QWG)

About Us

In 2003, the Queen’s Women Graduates' Association (QWGA) merged with the Queen's University Association (QUA) to form the Queen's Graduates' Association (QGA). However, while both run events for their members and each hold their own annual dinners, the QWG exists primarily to maintain links with national and international sister organisations. In doing so, the QWG assists in the education of young women and girls globally.

Jean Crawford Cochrane Scholarship 

The Jean Crawford Cochrane scholarship was founded by Frances Grant, family friend and executrix of Jean Crawford. Jean was a member of the Queen's Women Graduates' Association and attended regular meetings and events. 

The purpose of the Award is in memory of Jean Crawford Cochrane, to encourage women normally coming from the post-primary education system in Northern Ireland to further their education through an undergraduate degree course at Queen’s, an opportunity which otherwise may have been limited, due to financial constraints.

The QWG helps promote the scholarship and assists the University in selecting a suitable recipient.
