Torrens University Scholarship Opportunity with Business Women Australia

An opportunity for a fully paid scholarship to study an MBA is available through a new partnership between Business Women Australia and Torrens University Australia.

The partnership is to support the learning and development, network connections and career goals of Australian women in business.

They are launching the partnership with a ‘Scholarship Pitch’ for members of BWA nationally to win a fully paid scholarship for one successful member of BWA.

Australian women are encouraged to join the BWA collective and submit their proposal and pitch before Sunday, 16th August 2020. The awarded scholarship recipient will be announced on Friday, 21st August 2020, ready for the September Torrens University intake.

All applicants who have entered the Scholarship Pitch and meet the award criteria, but are unsuccessful, will be offered a 15% scholarship.

Lyn Hawkins, National Director of BWA said, “We see this partnership as the beginning of a powerful conduit for women helping to remove barriers to success.

“This is a significant partnership that will bring valuable knowledge and networks to the Business Women Australia community helping shape a better future for business in Australia.

“The world needs more female leaders who have the skills, confidence, and experience that this partnership will deliver. Research consistently indicates that companies who have more women on boards and in the C-suite roles perform better across many important financial and organisational metrics.”

Linda Brown, President Torrens University Australia said, “Our University has the highest ranking among Australian universities for enrolments by women in non-traditional backgrounds, meaning we are ensuring women continue to forge into new pathways and new industries.

“I’m proud that we have female leadership in our executive team, in our Deans, across program leadership, and in our alumni community.”
