The application process

Complete the WELA 2017 Application Form no later than Sunday 26 February 2017.

The application asks why you would like to participate as well as your experience and needs from the program. We ask for two referees also to support your application and for you to tell us your preferred funding model. You can apply as an individual or as part of an organisation: we are of course wanting participants to be actively engaged in environmental action and change in their lives (whether or not you define it as leadership). The 2017 cohort is limited to 20 women. We would like a diversity of women in the cohort and this will be an aspect of the selection process; for example:

  • differences in age and cultural backgrounds
  • a national focus with representation from all states
  • different campaigns on different environmental issues

We envisage running this program again perhaps in 2019 but of course we will be guided by the need for the WELA program and the availability of funding.

Applications are due to: by Sunday 26 February 2017. Applicants will be advised whether they are successful early in March.

Please feel free to send on to your networks and friends!
