FUNDING GRANTS FOR WOMEN IN THE EMERGENCY SERVICES SECTOR
Following the preliminary announcement of the 2015 National Industry Scholarship Grant Initiative that will support the development of women's leadership in the emergency services sector, the response from women across the sector has been extremely encouraging.
The major challenge of the initiative is to ensure that details of the initiative are disseminated across the sector to ensure that all emergency services sector women managers and leaders have equitable access to the opportunity. It is also important that women across the sector are aware that applications for scholarship grants must be submitted prior to Friday October 30.
In order to assist with the objectives of this important national initiative the National scholarship committee is inviting respected associations and groups within the industry to forward details of the initiative to their women members.
In addition to the funding pool of $300,000 that is provisioned for applications made prior to October 30 deadline the attached message also advises that a limited amount of funding from the initial release remains available for applications made prior to next Wednesday September 30. For this reason it would be greatly appreciated if you are able to forward the message to your members at your earliest convenience.
