Women Leaders in Sport Grants
The Women Leaders in Sport (WLIS) grant program is an Australian Government initiative that is managed by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) in partnership with the Office for Women.
The objective of the WLIS grant program is to provide female administrators, coaches and officials with opportunities to undertake intermediate or advanced training within an existing pathway in the sports industry to reach their leadership potential.
2016 WLIS applications are now closed!
There are two types of grants available:
- Individual grant of up to $5,000 per annum, or
- Organisation grant of up to $10,000 per annum.
Grants are available in the following categories:
- Communications, media and marketing
- Governance (board/committees)
- Management and administration
As part of the WLIS grant program, the ASC conducts a two-day sport leadership workshop for grant recipients. The workshop aims to develop the participant’s leadership capabilities to progress within sport as an administrator, coach or official, and to enable them to effectively manage the challenges within their sport and life in general.
Attendance at one of the 2016 WLIS Leadership Workshops is mandatory to all 2016 WLIS grant recipients.
All organisation grant recipients must nominate an aspiring female leader from within the organisation who is participating in the WLIS grant funded project to attend the workshop.
