EWHA's Grants

Support for our members

In 2020, as a way of supporting our female members, EWHA created two new annual grants which will benefit a small business member and an apprentice member each year.

If you are a financial member and wish to apply for one of these grants, you will find details of the Small Business Grant and the Apprenticeship Grant below.
