About this scholarship:

This scholarship was established in 2021 by The Women’s College in partnership with Alumni Friends, under the Create Change Scholarship Match Initiative, to honour Dr Maureen Aitken, who had a significant influence in the life of The Women’s College, serving as Principal from 1991-2008.

Dr Aitken held a BA with First Class Honours In French Language and Literature, a Postgraduate Diploma In Education and a PhD from The University of Queensland. She gave opportunity and encouragement to countless students by believing that confident and creative women can shape a better future. The annual distributions of the endowment support students experiencing financial hardship with the cost of residential fees at The Women’s College.
