Change Our Game Scholarships Announced
A total of 23 women across the state have been awarded a scholarship in the latest round of the Victorian Government's Change Our Game Scholarship program.
The popular initiative is designed to support women looking to take on leadership roles in the Victorian sport and active recreation sector.
To date, over 120 Victorian women working and volunteering in sport and recreation have gained access to a range of professional development opportunities and training courses through the scholarship program, benefitting not just themselves, but also their organisations.
The program is tiered to ensure leadership opportunities throughout the sector, from community level volunteers through to senior executives at state sporting associations.
The Change Our Game Scholarships are part of the Victorian Government's $241.6 million commitment to level the playing field for women and girls in sport and active recreation.
