Graduate Women Victoria offers an annual program of scholarships and bursaries for women and non-binary/gender-diverse students enrolled in universities in Victoria.

Within this category:  The May Kentish Scholarship is restricted to applicants whose areas of study and career plans are relevant to areas of social justice, national or international.  The Judith Rodriguez Bursary is restricted to those studying in the area of literary, visual or related arts, e.g. film or music.

PhD and Doctoral Degree Students

Within this category: The Madeleine Capicchiano Bursary is reserved for students whose research is on issues of human rights or social justice at the local, national or international level; The Nancy Millis Bursary gives preference to students whose research is in the Sciences; The Graduate Women Victoria Scholarship is reserved for students who can demonstrate that their research and career plans support the aims of GWV.


Applying for a specific Bursary or Scholarship does not mean that you cannot be considered for any other appropriate award within the same category.
