With Round Three of Westpac Women’s Education Grants closing on November 23, Westpac has encouraged women and girls to apply for financial assistance.
The financial assistance is for primary, secondary or tertiary education or for a course should they wish to return to study, before it’s too late.
Westpac Fiji general manager, Adrian Hughes, said: “We’ve received a heartening response so far to Round Three of our Westpac Women’s Education Grants.
“But with applications closing in just a week, we’d love to see more women and girls applying for this wonderful opportunity.”
Mr Hughes said these grants have been created to give women and girls the chance to gain the education they so deserve.
“Education has the power to transform lives in our country, providing an empowering platform from which women and girls can achieve their goals,” he said.
“This can have a powerful effect on other women, in encouraging them to believe that they can fulfil their aspirations, whatever they may be.”
Westpac is offering six education grants in Fiji:
Winners for Round Three would be announced on December 10.
To apply, applicants simply say what one opportunity they would provide for women in their country if they could and why.
Grant application forms and information on criteria are available from Westpac’s website and from all Westpac branches.
Westpac’s Pacific operations cover the Cook Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.
