Female apprentices in New South Wales, Australia can now apply for a scholarship, thanks to the Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund Incorporated and Apprentices Trainees Employment Ltd (ATEL). The scholarship of $2,000 will be used to assist female apprentices in any Non-Traditional Trade with the purchase of tools and other expenses related to their career.
The Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund awards a scholarship of $2,000 and mentoring to a successful female candidate every year on the 16th of July – Sarah’s birthday, a very fitting time to celebrate, support and recognise female apprentices in non-traditional trades.
To apply for the Sarah Lloyd Scholarship, send an email, complete with documentation that addresses the following criteria to Cathy LeCerf at Cathy.LeCerf@atel.com.au. Applications open on 1 May 2020 at 9:00 am AEST and close at 5:00 p.m. AEST on 14 June 2020. The Fund committee will select the recipient of the scholarship after reviewing all applicants. The winning beneficiary will be notified on 2 July 2020 and an official presentation will occur at a local ATEL on 16 July 2020.
