BIG SISTER ACADEMY FOR GIRLS OF IMPACT SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2022 (YEAR 10 TO 12)
Girls of Impact is an award winning not for profit organisation helping female high school students to get ready for the future of work and support them. This is achieved through targeted, long term support to help overcome the barriers that discourage young women from pursuing pathways in areas like STEM. This is done through working with schools nationally to run workshops, work experience and meet industry mentors.
In collaboration with industry leaders and partners, they are running a national program starting in February 2022 aimed at female high school students in Years 10 to 12. This is called the ‘Big Sister Academy’, and it’s designed to build, inspire and nurture the next generation of female leaders, change-makers and STEM champions so that young women can step into the workforce. They currently have 30 free scholarships available nationally and would love to share them with our female students or parents/caregivers in case they would be interested in applying.
For more information, please contact Mrs Kemp.
