Scholarships of up to $5,000 for current and aspiring female leaders 

This is the last and final call for all women currently working in the health sector to express interest in a limited pool of scholarship funding that has to be allocated by the end of September. 

The fee support opportunity provides women with funding of between $1,000 and $5,000 (per applicant, subject to a set of selection criteria being met) to undertake a range of leadership development programs commencing in coming months. 

Interest has been strong and many high-calibre candidates have already been awarded one of the partial scholarships. Stakeholders and creditors across the health sector want to take this opportunity to thank all partners and associations for their support to date. 

To ensure equitable access to the grants, WLNZ has extended the funding window until September 25. 

It is important to note that it is uncertain when the funding window will be available again. More information and initial expressions of interest are available here: https://www.womenandleadership.co.nz/health.html
