The scholarship grants are co-funded by Hort Innovation and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) and cover up to 83% of the program fee. For women working in the apple or pear sector, a number of fully funded scholarship positions are also available.

The scholarships are applicable for women who are emerging leaders, mid-level managers or those with senior/executive level experience. The funding is available to those working in both levy and non-levy paying horticultural organisations, including wholesalers, distributors and research and development bodies. Both individuals and groups of employees within the sector are encouraged to apply.

This unique initiative is a collaborative five-year 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. To date, 39 women from the sector have participated.

All of WLA’s courses are part-time and designed for those already employed. Both fully online and ‘blended’ (partly online, partly face-to-face) delivery models are available. A payment plan is available for successful course applicants if preferred.
