LG Professionals Australia is supporting women working in local government in Australia by offering scholarships to enhance their professional skills and develop their career resilience during and beyond the pandemic. Scholarships are made available by the Australian Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet Office for Women.
LG Professionals Australia has distributed the funding to each state to enable local government professionals Australia wide to apply for a scholarship.
What does the scholarship cover in Victoria?
LGPro are awarding two scholarships of $1,500 each to go towards LGPro Professional Development and event offerings. The scholarship will differ depending on your membership status;
- An LGPro Individual Member can apply the full amount towards an LGPro Professional Development and event offering.
- For non-members, a portion of the fund will go to LGPro membership and the remaining can be used to access LGPro Professional Development at member rates! For more information on membership fees and benefits >> LGPro membership
The scholarships must be used in full by 30 June 2021.
Eligible applicants must be female local government professionals currently working in Australian local government in a non-elected capacity. You will be asked how you have been impacted by Covid-19 professionally and/or financially and how you may benefit from the scholarship.
Applications close on Friday, 2 October 2020. Scholarship recipients will be announced in November 2020.
By submitting the application, the applicant consents to the written materials and information provided to be used by LG Professionals Australia in any publications, brochures, internet site, or other promotional initiatives.
