Women’s scholarship enrolments open

Applications for scholarships at Charles Darwin University that aim to enhance education and employment outcomes for women are open until March 4.

Women living in the Northern Territory who are community-minded and demonstrate an economic, social, cultural or geographic disadvantage are eligible to apply for the Minister for Women’s Scholarships.

The Higher Education scholarship is valued at $15,000 with an additional laptop to the value of $1200, while two Vocational Education and Training scholarships are valued at $2000 each.

CDU External Relations manager Martin Redhead said these scholarships were among CDU’s most competitive.

“The Minister for Women’s Scholarships can have a real impact on helping Territory women to achieve tertiary education outcomes,” Mr Redhead said.

The scholarships are available to women studying at CDU or the Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education and are administered by the CDU Scholarships Program. The NT Government committed $20,200 to support the scholarships.

NT Minister for Women’s Policy Bess Nungarrayi Price said the scholarships were designed to improve employment, economic security and general life outcomes for women and to improve the NT’s overall skill base.
