OUR Purpose

She Business is about bringing women together to help them reach their full potential. And our commitment to empowering a community of female entrepreneurs continues to grow.

To further enhance this support for businesses, we’ve introduced a scholarship to help aspiring Australian businesswomen along their business journey.

The She Business Scholarships are awards for female entrepreneurs with a purposeful interest in building their own business, but who have a financial need or social disadvantage that may be holding them back.

Could you benefit from a She Business Scholarship?
We’re looking for women to join our community who:

  • Know their ‘why’ for being in business and have a compelling vision for its growth
  • Want to make a positive impact and are aligned with the She Business values
  • Want to actively contribute to their community and consider becoming a mentor in She Business
  • Believe in continual learning, personal leadership and innovation
  • Demonstrate personal accountability and achievement in the face of adversity and challenges
  • Believe that relationship building is key to business success.

THE Scholarships

Three scholarship categories are available

If you’re accepted for a Scholarship award, you’ll receive:

  • One year’s membership to She Business as a Growth level member  (Online level membership for Regional  Award recipients)
