Westpac is giving girls and women the chance to continue their education through the Westpac Women’s Education Grants.
About the Grants
There are nine Grants available – three Grants for each of the three categories: primary school, high school/secondary college and tertiary student/adult worker wishing to return to study.
The successful Grant recipients will receive funding to contribute towards their education costs. For primary school, the Grant is $400, for high school/secondary college, the Grant is $1,000 and for tertiary students/adult workers who wish to return to study, the Grant is $2,150.
All local girls and women are encouraged to apply.
