Funding grants are currently available to women who work in schools to support their participation in a leadership development program.
The fee support opportunity provides a scholarship of up to $1,500 for women to take part in either the Advanced or Middle Leadership Program.
The grants have been provisioned for 2018 as part of the Year of Women in School Leadership and as such have to be allocated by the end of the year.

The Year of Women in School Leadership aims to support women in schools via a range of research, events and programs. NESLI’s survey conducted earlier in the year found that almost 1 in 2 women have experienced some kind of gender-based barrier or discrimination throughout their careers.
This dedicated funding pool and the launch of the new Middle Leadership Program for women aims to address these challenges for as many women as possible throughout the sector, and is made possible through a collaborative partnership between the National Excellence in School Leadership Initiative (NESLI) and Women & Leadership Australia (WLA).
