Something else you tell us!

"I just wanted to thank you, thank you, thank you for the opportunity for a scholarship and the opportunity to attend such an incredible event. It really has been invaluable for me. I have been able to reconnect with the purpose driven, flamboyant person I used to be and for the first time in years, feel invigorated and excited for the future. I could go on and on! But in short, and I know you won’t mind my swearing, it was a f****** revelation.”

Please note – completing an application does NOT guarantee you a scholarship place, so do not book travel or visas etc. until you are sure you have been awarded a place.

The $10 administrative fee will be refunded if your application is unsuccessful but is not refundable after the place has been awarded.

If you are interested in this scholarship opportunity, please complete the online application above. Once complete, you will receive an application confirmation. This is NOT a confirmation of being selected for a scholarship, only a confirmation that we have received your application.

Once received, the Aspire for Equality team will carefully review your application. If we determine you successful, you will receive an official Aspire Scholar Acceptance via email within 7 days or sooner of submitting your online application.

You must apply separately for each individual event you are interested in, regardless of whether you have applied for a past event. This allows the selection process to be fair to all applicants.

  • Before applying, please read all information above.
  • Please fill out the online application in its entirety.
  • Your application confirmation is not a guarantee that you will be selected.
  • You must apply separately for each event you are interested in having a scholarship for.
  • Please list your date of preference in your application.
  • Please pay the $10 non-refundable administration fee.
  • You will be notified within 7 days or sooner if you have been accepted.
  • If the event becomes full, your application may still be accepted and waitlisted in case of cancellations.

“A little note to say thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in the Aspire workshop through your scholarship programme! It was the best event/conference/training/networking that I have ever been to."
