Women in Leadership Scholarships

The Network is very happy to announce that the TFFPN is partnering with the Tasmanian Government to offer women in the forest industry scholarships under the Board Diversity Government Scholarship Program.

The Scholarships will be co funded by the partners to a total of $20,000.

The program will offer opportunities to complete the Company Directors Course (CDC), or Foundations of Directorship Course (FOD), offered by the Australian Institute of Company Directors. The number of scholarships offered will depend on which courses applicants are enrolled to complete.

Applications will open the week beginning the 11th November and close Monday 9th December. Please watch out for these advertisements in all regional newspapers.
