Westpac Women and Girls Education Grants closing soon, apply now

With nominations for the Westpac Women and Girls Education Grants closing soon, the bank is encouraging females who would benefit from financial assistance towards the cost of their education to apply for a grant before it’s too late.
Westpac is offering a total of six education grants in Papua New Guinea in 2016 – 2 winners to get K3000 grants for primary school, 2 winners to get K3000 grants for high school or secondary college students, and 2 winners to get K3000 grants for tertiary students or workers who would like to return to study.
Westpac has offered these Grants since 2011 because the bank recognises the critical link between education and the broader empowerment of women across the Pacific.
“I strongly encourage women and girls from around the country to start on their applications now and to get their applications in by the deadline,” said Mr Cameron Penfold, Westpac PNG’s Head of Retail Banking.
