Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship

The Tasmanian Government wants all Tasmanians to follow their ambitions and we are committed to helping them reach their goals.

We are pleased to announce that applications have opened today for the 2020-21 Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship.

Now in its third year, the Scholarship is a partnership between Womensport and Recreation Tasmania Inc (WSRT) and the Tasmanian Institute of Sport (TIS) and is aimed at providing women with quality coaching learning and development opportunities.

Ultimately, the goal is to see more women coaching sport in Tasmania.

The Scholarship will provide financial support as well as opportunities to enhance existing coaching knowledge through learning and development activities including network building and mentorship.

To support each person’s needs, the program will be tailored to provide an individual coach development plan which will be completed in consultation with the scholarship recipient.

The value of each scholarship is $5,000 and applications will be open from today October 19 until Monday 2 November 2020.
