Sidepost Women in Trades Scholarship
Sidepost is a Melbourne-based Australian company that provides an online and mobile marketplace enabling users to outsource everyday tasks. It is a one-stop shop for all your home improvement needs.
As a home service company that delivers many different trade services, we understand the value of having a skilled tradesperson. We believe that everyone, regardless of their gender identity, should have an opportunity to enter their chosen trade. This is why we’ve set up a scholarship for women who wish to pursue a trade or technical education. In 2022, women make up only a minor percentage of the trades and technical workforce. This is especially prevalent in core industries such as construction, automotive and electrical, where women only account for less than 2% - a percentage that's remained stagnant for over two decades.
Value: $2,000 towards tuition fees, course materials, trade tools and equipment, living expenses, personal protective equipment (PPE) and tools
Number Available: 1
Eligibility Criteria: Applicants must:
- Identify as a female
- be 18 years or older
- have a strong interest in pursuing a career in the trades
- be currently enrolled in or have been accepted to a trade or technical program at an accredited institution.
