The UWA Centenary Trust for Women was established in 2002 to support and encourage women facing financial difficulties when studying at UWA.

Erica Symth

The UWA Centenary Trust for Women has a strong reputation for building support for the University from the wider business and graduate community in WA. In the next few years, more scholarships will be awarded and more events run that will engage students and graduates with our scholarship and student support initiatives.

I look forward to the creation of exciting new ways to both garner support for the aims of the Trust and to effectively distribute the funds raised.

Purposes of the Trust

The purposes of the Trust are to :

  • provide advice, financial or other assistance where educational opportunities are limited because of distance, economic difficulties, cultural differences, disability or responsibility for the care of children, the ill, or the elderly, and
  • promote positive attitudes towards women in education by developing programs to increase public awareness of relevant issues and by raising funds and commissioning research as and when needed.
