The Judith Rodriguez Scholarship worth $8000 is being offered by Graduate Women Victoria this year. The scholarship will be awarded to a student of poetry, literature or visual arts undertaking a PhD or doctoral degree course at a Victorian University.
Judith, a leading poet, was a fixture at Sisters in Crime Melbourne events over the past few years, died in late 2018 at the age of 82.
Judith’s work included The Hanging of Minnie Thwaites (Arcade Publications, 2011), inspired by the real-life hanging of a 19th-century baby-farmer. She read from it at Death in July, the women’s crime festival organised by Sisters in Crime and Ballarat Writers Inc in 2014.
The Scholarship is funded by donations from Judith’s family and friends.
Applications open on 7 February and close on 31 March.
