Deadline Extended: Women's Leadership Development Scholarships

Hi Anne-Marie,
You may already be aware that a pool of scholarship funding has currently been provisioned for women in the beauty sector to participate in a range of leadership development courses.
Following feedback from stakeholders and creditors, a one week extension to the scholarship nomination cut-off has been approved.

Any of your members or contacts still wishing to submit a nomination now have until June 16 to do so, and expressions of interest can be registered via this link:  

The fee support opportunity provides women with funding of between $3,000 and $8,000 which has to be allocated prior to the end of this financial year (June 30). The grants will not be available for the beauty sector in the foreseeable future.

Below is some wording that would be appropriate in support of the project. If you could let me know whether you will be able to send this to your members/contacts or include in your newsletter it would be sincerely appreciated.
We thank Association of Professional Aestheticians of Australia in advance for your support and involvement with this important developmental initiative. 
Kind regards,
Alistair Young
