The Australian Government is inviting applications from an organisation(s) or consortium to apply for grant funding under the Women’s Leadership and Development Program to administer and manage the delivery of the Scholarships for Women in Finance and Economics program (the scholarships) across Australia.  

The objective of the scholarships is to encourage more women to study accounting, business, finance and economics, or to renew, upskill or refresh their skills in these areas. This will assist more women to enter, re-enter and achieve leadership roles in the economics and financial services industry.

In particular, the scholarships will focus on supporting more women from disadvantaged backgrounds studying economics and related fields. This should include, but not be limited to, women who:

  • are re-entering the workforce
  • have low socio economic status
  • are mature age or young
  • are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
  • are new migrants
  • are living in rural and remote areas.

The intended outcome of the scholarships is to create a talent pool and pipeline to increase numbers of women in careers in accounting, finance and economics, or aspiring to leadership roles in the economic and financial services industry.
