As you may be aware in 2022 Griffith University launched a Women in Sport Strategy which aims to improve outcomes for all women in sport, particularly in the areas of Elite Sport, Research, Education and Leadership, Partnerships and Engagement and Social/Community Impact.  A copy of the Strategy is in the link provided.

As a part of this Strategy Griffith was pleased to announced Women in Sport Leadership scholarships.  These scholarships are designed to provide support for women currently working in sport to progress their careers within the industry.  These scholarships provide 50% tuition eligible for the Griffith MBA program, which is ranked as the Number 1 values-based MBA worldwide, and also for the Grad Cert in Leadership and Management or the Grad Cert in Business Administration. These degrees are offered online and in person.

Please note that these scholarships do not require the applicant to be an athlete or a former athlete, they are aimed at women leaders or aspiring leaders currently working in sport. Ideally sporting organisations would provide additional financial support for the scholarship recipients, although this is not required.   Can you please share this opportunity with any women that may be interested, noting that the scholarships are closing on 13 February.

Below is a link to the scholarship and application process and the MBA LinkedIn page.
