About this scholarship

This scholarship is sponsored by Coffs Coast International Women's Day and will support a postgraduate student in her studies. The scholarship will form part of the celebrations of International Women's Day at Coffs Campus.

International Women's Day (IWD) celebrates and acknowledges the achievements of women globally on 8th March each year. The day is supported by the three major women's groups in Coffs Harbour: Zonta Club of Coffs Harbour Inc., BPW (Business and Professional Women) Coffs Harbour, and Coffs Coast Business Women's Network (BWN).

These organisations have collaboratively been holding a special breakfast on the morning of 8th March for many years, providing an opportunity for girls, men and women to come together to share in the successes of our local women and girls.
