2017 AICD SCHOLARSHIPS FOR EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN IN MINING

The Minerals Council of Australia, in partnership with BHP and Downer, is again supporting talented women to take the next step in their careers. The scholarship provides funding to complete the world-class Company Directors Course at the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).

This initiative aims to increase female participation on company boards within the minerals industry. The AICD course equips graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a company director role. Now in its fifth year, the program has funded 15 women to complete the Company Directors Course so far.

Applications are now open for four scholarships.

To be eligible, applicants must be Australian based and be nominated by an MCA member or associate member company.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday 14 July.
