Women Rising™ Program


Women Rising Program Scholarships

In our mission to help women rise and champion inclusivity we are excited to be able to provide up to TEN Fully Funded scholarships and TEN Partially Funded scholarships to the Women Rising program for people from underrepresented communities and cultures. Everyone is welcome to apply and whilst we recognise that there are many people who would benefit from a scholarship, we are currently focused on supporting those who identify as First Nations, living with disability, people of colour, LGBTQIA+, non-binary, those who are culturally and linguistically diverse, people from regional and remote areas (those who do not live or work within 100km radius of a CBD), and those suffering from financial hardship.

Thanks to the work of the Women Rising Foundation successful recipients of the Fully Funded scholarships will have their program fee paid in full and the Partially Funded scholarships will receive a 50% discount and payment plan for the program.
