The Gail Kelly Young Women Leaders Scholarship


 In my time as Westpac CEO, I saw the importance of Executives developing outstanding leadership capabilities. Through this new Scholarship, I’m hoping to support young women to excel in their education, lives, and careers. 


Launching in 2023, The Gail Kelly Young Women Leaders Scholarship is a new program that supports and encourages undergraduate education to outstanding young women leaders.

One scholarship will be awarded every year* to a first-year commencing student enrolled in any discipline at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) who shows exceptional leadership in their lives and studies, including through extra-curricular activities and contributions to their broader communities.


*For 2023 only, one scholarship will also be awarded to each of a second-year, penultimate-year and final-year continuing UNSW student.
