Inbox: Opportunity for young female leaders

A $50,000 annual scholarship set up to foster the next generation of women leaders is calling for applications for its 2012 scholarship.
The Yvonne Smith Charitable Trust awards one scholarship annually for woman embarking on post-graduate studies with preference given to studies in business, political science, economics or law.
Divya Dhar, 2011 scholarship winner, has begun joint Masters in Public Policy and Business Administration at Harvard University. She was the Young New Zealander of the Year in 2010. She has been doctor at Middlemore Hospital and her goal is to develop and lead public-private health partnerships that will impact health outcomes in New Zealand and globally.
The scholarship was set up in 1999 by New Zealander Yvonne Smith. “I admire the way New Zealand women can hold their own with other leaders on the world stage and I want to foster the education of the next generation of women leaders,” she said at time.
Applications for the 2012 scholarship close on 15 December 2011. Application forms and regulations can be found at www.fortunemanning.co.nz. M
