Innovative Women's Scholarship Program Now Open

9 November 2015

Women serving on the boards across Victoria can now apply for one of 34 scholarships to build their leadership capacity and boost their skills, Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said today.

Applications are now open for the Victorian Women’s Governance Scholarship Program – an initiative that strengthens the governance of boards by funding opportunities for women to expand their board skills.

“It offers eligible women the chance to undertake the Institute’s ‘Company Directors Course’,” Mr Walsh said

Since the scholarship program started in 2012, more than 100 women of diverse backgrounds have undertaken the course, boosting their board skills and enhancing opportunities for networking with other emerging, women leaders.


“The Nationals recognise the importance of increasing the number of women taking on leadership and board roles in rural and regional Victoria.

“This really is a wonderful training opportunity and I urge all eligible women to apply,” Mr Walsh said.

Applications close on 210 November 2015.   . For further information, visit:
