Announced as part of the 2015 Australian Award for Excellence in Women’s Leadership, Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) is administering a National Scholarship Grant Initiative to support the development of women leaders across in the media sector.
In line with the national ambition of the initiative, from 1 October 2015, $450,000 in additional scholarship funding has been provisioned for the development of women from early career through to senior level in all industry sectors.
The major challenge of the initiative is to ensure that details of the initiative are disseminated across the sector to ensure that all media sector women managers and leaders have equitable access to the opportunity. It is also important that women across the sector are aware that applications for scholarship grants must be submitted prior to Monday, 30 November 2015.
In order to assist with the objectives of this important national initiative the National scholarship committee is inviting respected associations and groups within the industry to forward details of the initiative to their women members.
Should you wish to apply for scholarship grant or register an expression of interest for a grant please refer to the attached image below.
If you would like to discuss the initiative in more detail I can be contacted at the office of the National Industry Scholarship Program on 03 9270 9016 or via return email addressed to Ian Johnson, National Scholarship Liaison, Women & Leadership Australia.
