In 2015, the International Women’s Day Illawarra Committee handed out five individual scholarships of $2,000 each to women in our community, who might not otherwise have the opportunity to expand their knowledge, skill and experience in a field of their interest or in which they have shown great potential. Scholarship Applications will open again in late 2015 for your 2016 event.

The 2015 winners were:

Susan Wallis – Cate Stevenson IWD Scholarship for Women 


Jade Bagnall – Kerryn McCann IWD Scholarship for Women


Georgina Ball – Rayna Bernhorster Scholarship for Women    


Chloe Higgins – Creative Spirit IWD Scholarship for Women


Jade Strang – Aunty Mary IWD Scholarship for Indigenous Women
