Australian music business management and accounting services business White Sky and not-for-profit charity One Of One have joined forces to launch a brand new governance scholarship for women in the music industry. 

The recipient of the scholarship will be funded to attend a board governance training program tailored specifically for women.

"This will help ensure that more women have the necessary governance training and capabilities to advance their board careers and leadership skills," a statement from the organisations read. 

It "will also produce a flow-on effect, as more women on boards will mean more opportunities for diversity, healthier debate, role models and mentors for emerging people to connect with and learn from, and more diverse leadership within the Australian music industry".

Applications for the scholarship are open now. Follow the link here for more information and to apply.
