Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund
The Sarah Lloyd Scholarship is now open to female apprentices in NSW
Female apprentices can now apply for a scholarship, thanks to the Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund. This scholarship was set up in loving memory of Sarah Lloyd by her family.
The scholarship of $2,000 assists female apprentices in any trade with the purchase of tools and other expenses.
The Sarah Lloyd Scholarship was founded in Sarah’s honour shortly after her passing when Melinda Mack, a family friend, decided to focus on creating something positive out of the tragedy. After suggesting her idea to a small group of people, The Sarah Lloyd Scholarship Fund was formed.
It is aimed at supporting other young women who wish to work in non-traditional trades. Sarah was not afraid of being a female in a mainly male dominated industry. She was breaking ground with her apprenticeship and Sarah would want other females to do the same.
The Sarah Lloyd Fund awards a scholarship of $2,000 to a successful candidate every year on the 16th of July – Sarah’s birthday, a very fitting time to celebrate, support and recognise female tradies!
