The Centennial Scholarship 2020 (valued at $9000) marks the 100 year anniversary of the founding of our association under the name The Victorian Women Graduates Association.
Something of the history of the early years can be learned from a short history of the association put together in 1961 by the then president, Phyllis Ashworth.
Students who apply in 2020 for the Education Masters, Masters or Research/PhD Scholarships may apply at the same time for the Centennial Scholarship.
Opening date for applications: 7 February. Closing date: 31 March.
To win the Centennial Scholarship, you must demonstrate ways in which your study and career plans support the purposes of Graduate Women Victoria as outlined in our constitution:
The purposes of Graduate Women Victoria are to promote:
- the right of women and girls to accessible and affordable quality education in order to reach their full potential in private and public life;
- education as a means of influencing and benefiting society;
- the recognition and protection of human rights;
- peace, justice and equality.
The Centennial Scholarship is open only to applicants for the Education Masters, Masters or PhD Scholarship.
If a student is chosen for the Centennial Scholarship, she will not be able to win another Graduate Women Victoria scholarship or bursary in 2020.
Additional references are not required, but students are advised to inform their referees of their intention to apply for the Centennial Scholarship.
