2017 Women in Non Traditional Trades Scholarship

In the early days of the Network, Former Vice President Jann Gardner helped establish the WNH Scholarship as a lasting legacy of the Network, which provided a $500 to a second or later year female TAFE student in a non-traditional area of employment. Since this time the Scholarship Program has continued to grow and develop. Most recently expanding to include applicants from outside the TAFE community. This scholarship is completely funded through financial membership fees from the Network.

This year the scholarship is valued at $1,000.

Each year we are fortunate enough to offer a scholarship to a deserving Hunter woman studying in the field of  non-traditional trade. That is, a trade in which women have not traditionally worked or trained in.

We encourage and support these hard-working young woman breaking into a field of career surrounded by men often with few or no women in the industry to mentor or support them on their journey.
