Women Leaders in Sport grants program open

5 September 2021

Applications are now open for individuals and organisations to apply for a grant through the Women Leaders in Sport (WLIS) program.

This is an exciting opportunity and helps to enhance club cultures and support our emerging and established females within our sport.

The Australian sporting sector has the potential to become a leader in gender equity. To achieve this, we need to enhance the recruitment and retention of women leaders, coaches and officials.

Sport Australia's Women Leaders in Sport (WLIS) grants support individuals with their career development and organisations in building stronger foundations.

The WLIS program has supported more than 26,000 women and 100 local, state and national sporting organisations. It enables more opportunities for women and strives for a greater balance of men and women in senior positions both on and off the field.

Grant applications open September 28 and close October 15 at 5:00pm for NSW, VIC, TAS, 4:30pm for SA & NT 4:00pm for QLD and 2:00pm for WA.

We acknowledge that our office is spread across many traditional lands, and we pay respect to all traditional owners of these lands and elders past and present.
