In recognition of the enormous legacy of the late Chloe Munro AO, the Clean Energy Council and a coalition of organisations have established the Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership. The scholarship honours Chloe’s legacy and supports the next wave of female leaders.
Successful applicants will receive a fully funded scholarship to undertake one of two courses offered by Education Provider, Women & Leadership Australia.
A total of 14 scholarships will be awarded in 2021. This includes 4 places in the Executive Ready course, a seven-month development program for middle to senior leaders and 10 places in the Leading Edge program, a four-month development program for early career leaders and managers.
Applicants can only apply for a scholarship for one course, either the Leading Edge or the Executive Ready course.
The scholarship is open to emerging and mid-level female leaders in the fields of renewable energy, energy management and carbon abatement.
The women selected to undertake the courses will be encouraged to establish a strong network to support each other and further build their leadership capability and drive collaboration to continue to change the Australian energy system.
Please note, you can only apply for one scholarship, either the Leading Edge or the Executive Ready course. If you are unsure which course is right for you, please call the admissions team at Women & Leadership Australia on 1300 735 904.
Applications close at 11.00pm AEST on Sunday 26 September 2021.
Delivered part-time over four months, Leading Edge enables aspiring and early career managers to transition confidently into capable and motivated leaders.
Delivered part-time over seven months, Executive Ready challenges mid-level leaders to consider the strategic importance of their role, rapidly propelling them towards executive level performance, behaviours and mindsets.
The scholarship is made possible by the generous support of our partners.
