Graduate Women Victoria offers an annual program of scholarships and bursaries for women students enrolled in Universities in Victoria. Our organisation has been awarding scholarships to Victorian women since 1931; see here for lists of previous scholarship winners, and here for a report from a recent  winner.

Our offerings are subject to change from year to year.  You may be eligible to apply if you are:

  • Female
  • Enrolled student at a Victorian university or at a Victorian campus of the Australian Catholic University on 31 March in the year of application
  • Normally resident in Victoria while studying
  • Experiencing or have experienced disadvantage in the pursuit of your studies.

Scholarships are available to female students in the following categories based on the Australian Qualifications Framework

In addition, the Marilyn Godley Scholarship is offered to a female Indigenous undergraduate student and the International Scholarship is offered to an International female student studying  for a doctoral degree.

Women who are Australian citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply for all scholarships, except the International scholarship.  Female International students and New Zealand students who are not permanent residents undertaking a Doctoral Degree course are eligible to apply for the International Scholarship.
