The Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership

We recently lost one of the giants of our sector, Chloe Munro AO. In honour of Chloe's overwhelming contribution to Australia's energy industry, a coalition of leading energy organisations have come together to support women in energy, continuing Chloe's legacy of doing just that.

The Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership is for emerging and mid-level female leaders in the fields of renewable energy, energy management and carbon abatement. It's for women involved across the entire energy sector, and for those working in energy and carbon management across the whole economy, acknowledging Chloe's deep commitment to supporting a systemic approach to Australia's energy transition.

A total of 14 scholarships will be awarded in 2021. This includes four (4) places in the Executive Ready program, a seven-month development program for middle to senior leaders and ten (10) places in the Leading Edge program, a four-month development program for early career leaders and managers.

Successful applicants will receive a a fully funded scholarship to undertake one of two courses offered by our education provider, Women & Leadership Australia. The first round will include four places in the Executive Ready program, a seven-month development program for middle to senior leaders, and ten places in the Leading Edge program, a four-month development program for early career leaders and managers.

Applications are open from 26 August to 26 September 2021, with further rounds to be announced in due course. For more information on the scholarship, eligibility and how to apply, visit the scholarship page at cleanenergycouncil.org.au/chloe.

The women awarded the scholarships will be encouraged to establish a strong network to support each other and further build their leadership capability and drive collaboration to continue to change the Australian energy system.

The Chloe Munro Scholarship for Transformational Leadership was announced during an online tribute to Chloe's life.
