Written by: The Cowra Phoenix


Wattamondara’s Fee Jennings has been named one of 24 recipients of the Future Women NSW Rural Scholarship Program.

The 12-month scholarship program kicked off last week with the recipients attending the Future Women Leadership Summit in Sydney on 6-7 March, as part of the 2023 NSW Women’s Week celebrations.

Future Women Managing Director and Founder Helen McCabe said the breadth and calibre of this year’s intake will have a big impact on the Future Women community.

“The number and quality of applications was exceptional and we look forward to meeting the women at next week’s Leadership Summit and working with them throughout 2023,” Ms McCabe said.

“I know Future Women members from across Australia will learn as much from these incredible women as they will learn from our leadership and training programs.”

Not only do the winners get access to the coveted Future Women Platinum+ Emerging Leaders Program, valued at over $6,000 each, but all 237 women who entered will also receive a complimentary one-year Gold membership, which gives them access to FW Advance, a year-long career development webinar series, and a 50 per cent discount to attend the Future Women Lead-ership Summit on 6-7 March.

Minister for Women Bronnie Taylor said the scholarship program is dedicated to helping women connect, learn and lead.

“I’m delighted to see the that the cohort participating in this program reflect both the creativity and diversity of women in rural, remote and regional NSW, while offering practical support and advice,” Mrs Taylor said.

“This year’s participants include small business owners, farmers, teachers, artists, engineers, and women working in health, disability, community development, transport, property and real estate.
