Women in Finance Scholarships

Kaplan Professional is delighted to partner again with the Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) to offer 10 Women in Finance Scholarships in 2022.

The purpose of the scholarship scheme is to support and encourage women of all backgrounds and circumstances to enter (or re-enter) the industry and achieve leadership roles across the finance and financial services sector.

Kaplan Professional is committed to promoting diversity and supporting women at all career stages. We hope the scholarship scheme will go some way towards alleviating some of the financial burden to study at the postgraduate level.
