These scholarships enable recipients to enrol in the highly acclaimed Diploma of Digital Technologies at Flinders University, and they come at a significantly reduced cost. Applications are currently being accepted, and the deadline for submissions is November 1, 2023.

The Diploma of Digital Technologies program has been meticulously crafted to equip graduates with a comprehensive understanding of both the theory and practical aspects of Industry 4.0 methodologies and digital design.

This initiative is just one of the ways in which Wine Australia supports the professional development of individuals within the wine sector, fostering the growth of future leaders while enhancing the skills of current industry leaders.

This course is accessible to women at all levels of the industry’s value chain and does not necessitate any specific educational prerequisites.

However, preference will be given to applicants from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The final selection of the ten successful candidates will be a joint decision made by Flinders University and Wine Australia. To express your interest in this opportunity, please follow this link: [Insert Link].

Applicants who submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) will be personally contacted by Flinders University staff associated with the Digital Technologies program.

They will provide further details about the course and address any inquiries you may have.

Over the past two years, numerous women across the sector have benefited from this program, thanks to the collaboration between Wine Australia, Flinders University, and the Australian Government’s Women in STEM Cadetships and Advanced Apprenticeships Program.
