Contact [email protected] to establish a CTW named scholarship.

Established in 2004, our scholarships program empowers women to achieve their full potential.

We provide financial support to eligible women who cannot afford to begin or continue their studies at UWA. The Trust is proud to make a real difference in women’s lives with a transformative UWA education.

Our scholarships program includes a range of support for women at various stages of their studies across many disciplines, in addition to emergency funds.

Scholarships can be named for a family member, a mentor or an admired woman, and create a tradition of giving and philanthropy for future generations. They are an investment in the women of UWA.

Support a woman to reach her potential today with a scholarship from The Centenary Trust for Women.
