Elite Female Coaching Scholarship


Elite Female Coaching Scholarship applications open Monday 13 May and close Tuesday 11 June 2019

The Elite Female Coaching Scholarship (EFCS) program has been developed in response to the identified gap in female coaching development pathways and opportunities within elite sport.The program provides financial support for State Sporting Organisations (SSO) or elite teams (in the case where this is not linked to the SSO) to design and administer elite coaching programs for selected scholarship participant/s within their sport.

The ACT Government 2018 Women in Sport Forum (August) highlighted the unique perspective and value that female coaches can bring. Quality female coaches are sought after and yet, despite the continued development and heightened profile of major women’s sport, pathways for female coaches appear to remain constrained.

EFCS funding is targeted at supporting coach education, personal development or resources.

Please submit your applications through the 2019 Elite Female Coaching Scholarship Application Form.
