Women on the Coffs Coast looking to take up leadership development opportunities can apply for the Future Women Rural Scholarship program, with the NSW Nationals in the state government launching a new round of this successful initiative.
Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said $120,000 is available to women to help them achieve their goals.
“Women are the lifeblood of the Coffs Coast – they are the ones who keep us connected at the same time they are working and raising a family,” Mr Singh said.
“This important initiative is open to women living in remote, rural and regional NSW aged 18-39.”
Deputy Premier and Nationals Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the program is about boosting the leadership potential of women living in our regions.
“This is a wonderful initiative, and I urge any eligible woman who wants to boost her leadership potential and who has a burning desire to help other women in their goals to apply,” Mr Toole said.
Nationals Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the program opens up a range of opportunities, from networking to leadership training.
Recipients receive a place in the Future Women Platinum+ Program worth $5,500, where they will take part in networking, mentoring and digital learning opportunities.
Recipients will also be invited to attend the Future Women Leadership Summit on March 7 and 8 2022 to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Applications close on January 28, 2022 and recipients will be announced on February 14, 2022.
The NSW Government has partnered with Future Women, an organisation delivering virtual events, leadership training and a curated digital network to its members.
