Summary

Established in 1922 to co-ordinate social, intellectual and fund-raising activities, the Victorian Women Graduates' Association was formed as a forum through which University women could express their views and aimed to promote women's independent research. By 1928, membership of the Association had reached 300. An Endowment Fund was established to assist women students, and the Association held several conferences.

In 2009, in line with resolutions of the affiliated National body, the organisation changed its name to Graduate Women Victoria, Inc.
