Closing date

Open until all scholarships awarded

Our Women in Trades Scholarships is aimed at giving women the opportunity to help rebuild Canterbury by providing them with the skills and the knowledge to start a career in the trades industry.

There is increasing demand for more workers following Canterbury's earthquakes, particularly in construction. Better utilising women in Canterbury's recovery will mean business, Canterbury's economy, women and their families all benefit.
