Scholarship for Female Apprentices

in Non-Traditional Trades

The Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund, which was set up in loving memory of Sarah Lloyd by her family, giving female apprentices residing or working in New South Wales the opportunity to apply for a scholarship.

This Scholarship Fund is aimed at supporting other women who wish to work in non-traditional trades. Sarah was not afraid of being a female in a mainly male dominated industry. She was breaking ground with her apprenticeship and Sarah would want other females to do the same.

The scholarship of $2,000 and mentoring, assists female apprentices in non-traditional trades with the purchase of tools and other expenses
