Women in Recreational Fishing Leadership Program Scholarships 2020

Are you a woman who’s passionate about fishing and wants to develop your leadership skills? You should apply to be a part of our Women in Recreational Fishing Leadership Program!

Some of the women from previous year's scholarship program have achieved amazing outcomes in increasing and inspiring female participation in fishing.

Focused on unearthing tomorrow’s female fishing leaders, this year we will be delivering the program digitally due to the Covid-19 restrictions and the cancellation of AFTA 2020. We will offer ten women the chance to be a part of this program and contribute their voices to the future of the industry.

To apply for the leadership program, entrants need to:

  • Be over 18 years of age,
  • Victorian resident,
  • Be available to take part in the digital program which will be delivered via Zoom on 18-19 and 26-28 August from 7.30pm-9.30pm.
  • Answer the following application questions below.
  • Be a member of the Victorian Fisheries Authority Women in Recreational Fishing Facebook group (optional - if you have Facebook only),
