Leading Edge

The scholarship grants are co-funded by Hort Innovation and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA) and cover almost 60% of the program fee. For those working in the vegetable, pear or apple sectors, 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 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. A payment plan is available for successful course applicants if preferred.
