About Graduate Women WA

Graduate Women WA is a not-for-profit organization that welcomes women graduates interested in advancing the education of other women and promoting international harmony and friendship. For 90 years, Graduate Women WA has been the voice of graduate women who seek to serve and empower women and girls through education and advocacy at a local, national and international level.

At the state and territory level, the Australian Federation of Graduate Women helps women undertaking postgraduate studies by providing bursaries. Graduate Women WA traditionally provides five annual bursaries, a scholarship to a student resident of St Catherine's College and two grants to enable female high school students to attend the Science Summer School at Murdoch University. Funds for these bursaries come from donations and from the academic dress hire service run by members and volunteers.
