Demonstrate your commitment to empowerment of girls and women and gender equality by teaming up with Play like a Girl Australia. 

Empowering girls and women is essential to achieving gender equality which is why we’ve created the Play like a Girl Scholarship Program. 

The scholarship program allows organisations, councils, schools, sporting associations and parents to purchase leadership scholarships for females actively involved in sport. Then, the team at Play like a Girl can do what they do best, which is unlock the leadership potential of future female leaders. 

Our programs have a key focus on developing transferrable skills learned through sport (i.e. perseverance, resilience, tenacity, problem solving, innovation, navigating high-pressure situations within a team, cultural & emotional intelligence). 

With the investment provided for leadership scholarships, we use our links into community & elite sport to invite females to participate in our programs on fully-paid scholarships. 

Our growing community of female leaders continues to grow and our expected outcome is that these talented and ambitious females springboard off the lessons learned in our program and have the confidence to take on a leadership role within their community, club or career.

Sport is a powerful platform to foster gender equality and empower women and girls.
