Funding grants for women in health sector

Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) is a national initiative dedicated to supporting a greater number of female leaders throughout the Australian workforce and the broader community.

Focused on developing leadership capability, enabling career advancement and assisting women to more effectively manage the conflicting challenges of career and life, WLA has become a highly respected provider of leadership education to Australian women.

Since 2010, WLA and the Australian School of Applied Management (ASAM) have been supporting emerging and accomplished women leaders across all sectors to undertake leadership development programs through ASAM and WLA. This is accomplished through the National Industry Scholarship Initiative

Following an overwhelming response from health sector women to a preliminary release of scholarship funding in March this year, the initiative has now be rolled out nationally across 2015 and 2016. A further provision of $300,000 will be available for the remainder of 2015 with additional funding to be announced in early 2016.

The initiative will provide women in the Health care sector with grants for leadership development. More specifically, grant applications are open to women employed in the Health care sector at two levels. 

The scholarship grants are available at two levels:

  1. Senior level and high potential women leaders can apply for $12,000 Individual Grants to undertake the Advanced Leadership Program.
  2. Emerging and mid-level managers can apply for $4,500 Individual Grants to undertake the Accelerated Leadership Performance Program

The National Scholarship Committee advises that interested parties should submit applications at their earliest convenience.

If you wish to discuss the initiative in more details, please contact Shreya Aggarwal at the office of the National Industry Scholarship Program on (03) 9270 9000 or email SAggarwal@asam.edu.au
