School leavers, career changers and women returning to study are eligible to apply for the next round of the Queensland Government's Supporting Women Scholarships program.

The $10 million program is providing opportunities for women of all ages and backgrounds to gain qualifications in high priority and skills shortage areas, which have been traditionally male-dominated.

The scholarships are available for vocational education and training and university study from certificate IV level through to postgraduate qualifications in the following fields:

  • Agriculture and environment
  • Architecture and building
  • Earth science
  • Engineering
  • Information technology.

The scholarships, valued at up to $5000 each year (up to a maximum of $20,000), can be used to offset costs associated with study such as fees, textbooks and course materials or other costs such as moving or living expenses.

Applications close on 11 October for scholarships commencing at the beginning of the 2014 academic year.

For more information and to apply visit the Supporting Women Scholarships website.
