Applications for the State Government's Board Diversity Governance Scholarships Program for 2018-19 close on 15 October.

A joint initiative with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), the program is designed to support and mentor Tasmanian women who are emerging leaders to develop their governance skills and become board-ready.

With 58 scholarships awarded to Tasmanian women since 2015, the Scholarships Program is part of the Government’s Women on Boards Strategy to increase the representation of women on Government boards and committees to 50 per cent by 2020.

In its fourth year, the scholarships will be offered to seventeen Tasmanian women to undertake the Foundations of Directorship course along with a six month tailored program of events and activities provided by the AICD.
