Members of Graduate Women Victoria are young and not so young graduates of tertiary institutions of all kinds, who are passionate about helping other women to become graduates. They work to improve the social, political and economic situation of women in Australia and overseas.  Practical help is provided by our scholarship program, which assists women studying in Victorian universities; see here for more information.

Many admirable women have been members of our organisation. We are working to commemorate them by posting short biographies here on a page dedicated to their memories, Past Members Remembered. We also have a page carrying news and stories about current members, Members Now. We will be delighted to receive further contributions to these pages; please send these as email attachments to Marian Quartly at this address.

For those wishing to join Graduate Women Victoria, two levels of membership are available. Student members pay $10 to join the local organisation, Graduate Women Victoria, and can take part in all of its activities. Full members pay $80 (or $70 concession) to join the local association together with the national body, the Australian Federation of Graduate Women, and the international body, the International Federation of Graduate Women. More than half of the full subscription goes to the national and international bodies, to support their work for the women of the world.

Members receive regular newsletters and updates on the activities of the association at all levels. And members can access the latest information at the association’s websites. Both the Australian Federation of Graduate Women and the International Federation of Graduate Women  have sections available only to members.
