Centenary Trust for Women

Graduates Walk

Graduates' Walk

The CTW Graduates' Walk features pavers inscribed with graduates’ names and degree/s surrounding the iconic UWA Oak Lawn. A paver not only celebrates your years at UWA, it supports scholarships that make a real difference in the lives of women at our University.

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

The Trust was established by a group of visionary and inspirational women and we are proud to empower women to reach their full potential while studying at UWA.

We endeavour to promote positive attitudes towards women’s education through our programs, fundraising and research.

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.
