Westpac Announces 2016 Education Grant Winners

Westpac has announced the nine winners of the 2016 Westpac Women’s Education grant.

Westpac has offered these grants to help women and girls with the cost of their education since 2011, in recognition of the critical link between learning and the broader empowerment of females.

Westpac general manager, Brett Hooker, said: “A key aspect of our sustainability strategy is to ‘empower through education’.

“These education grants do just that – allowing girls to stay in school longer and women to continue studying.

“We know that women and girls who benefit from quality education have a far stronger chance of entering the workforce and  enjoying a strong and stable career – and, importantly, that they go on to have children who are well educated too.

“I would like to thank everyone who applied this year – it was an exception field with high quality writing and a hard task to select the winners,” Mr Hooker said. “
