Graduates from The University of Western Australia are raising significant funds to assist current and future UWA students who are at risk of withdrawing from study due to financial or personal issues.
The Centenary Trust for Women (CTW)'s Graduates' Walk project offers alumni the opportunity to commemorate their achievements at UWA through purchasing an inscribed paver. Each granite paver on Graduates' Walk, located next to Oak Lawn, is inscribed with a graduate's name, UWA degree(s) and graduation year(s).
Proceeds from the project's first phase (July 2011) have enabled the Centenary Trust for Women to successfully pilot a support fund assisting current students. The CTW aims to provide advice, financial or other assistance where educational opportunities are limited; and to promote positive attitudes towards women in education.
Graduates' Walk pavers are available to all UWA graduates - both men and women and those with academic and Honorary degrees. The pavers provide a unique opportunity to recognise a family member's achievement in perpetuity.
UWA Business School alumni who already hold pavers include Dr Michael Chaney AO, John Poynton, Margaret Packer, James McClements, Jody Fewster, Ian Passmore, Denby McGregor, Richard Court and Claire Brittain.
The UWA Centenary Trust for Women was established in 2002 to support and encourage women facing financial difficulties when studying at UWA. It aims to raise at least $1 million by 2013 and every donation to Graduates' Walk is fully tax deductible.
