2022 Applications Closed

CEW looks forward to launching applications for this scholarship again in 2023.  Please follow us on social media to be kept informed when our next round of applications will open.  Thank you for your interest in CEW and this program.

There is real opportunity to develop women sustainability practitioners across the fields of environmental sustainability, corporate sustainability, and sustainable finance, so they can advance into more influential roles to lead and accelerate sustainable outcomes.

Following on from the successful program in 2021, ANZ and CEW are offering up to two experienced women sustainability practitioners the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and enhance their capabilities.
