Women in Transport (WiT) Leadership Development Scholarships

Since 2017, the Women in Transport (WiT) Leadership Development Scholarship Program has provided opportunities for career advancement for high potential women to rise to senior positions within the industry.

This year we received 26 high calibre applications and a panel of senior leaders from within Transport, selected three to each receive $30,000.

Congratulations to our latest recipients Aditi Sachdeva, Department of Transport, Rhiannon Drummond-Clark, Suburban Rail Loop and Tamara Preuss from North East Link Project.

These worthy winners will study at a Masters level in the areas of Professional Management, Environment and Climate Emergency and Law.

Women employed by the Victorian Public Service (VPS) within Major Transport Infrastructure Authority (MTIA) and its projects, or by the Department of Transport (DoT) and its associated agencies are eligible to apply.
