Recognizing that post-secondary education is a powerful tool for raising the status of women, CFUW Perth and District allots a significant portion of the funds raised in our community to Education Awards. These awards offer financial assistance to deserving individuals who identify as female and non-binary who are pursuing post-secondary education in a publicly funded institution. Awards are available to individuals who are just graduating from secondary school and to mature individuals seeking to upgrade their skills or change careers. Priority is given to those applicants who demonstrate financial need.
In 2023, eight awards were given out.
