Expressions of interest are considered on a rolling basis and scholarship funding is strictly limited. Those interested are advised to register promptly.​

The scholarship grants are co-funded by Hort Innovation and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) and cover almost 60% of the program fee.

The scholarships are applicable for women who are emerging leaders or have mid-level management and leadership experience. The funding is available both to individuals and groups of employees within all levy-paying horticultural organisations across Australia.

This unique initiative is a collaborative funding partnership between Hort Innovation and WLA, and demonstrates the commitment of both parties in bringing about gender progression and equality within Australia’s horticulture industry.

All of WLA’s courses are part-time, designed for those already employed and are delivered via a ‘blended’ teaching model - partly online, partly face-to-face. The face-to-face components are held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. All three courses commence several times each year in all four capital cities.
