To mark International Women’s Day, World Rugby has renewed its commitment to driving inspirational leadership and fast tracking the development of women in rugby on and off the pitch through its successful women’s leadership scholarship programme.

Receiving more than 100 applications globally, this year the highly sought-after World Rugby executive leadership scholarships have been awarded to 14 women from different unions, an increase on the ten who were awarded in 2018.

Working in conjunction with the regional associations, who oversee the application process, the scholarship programme will offer more opportunities for leadership development for its member unions and regional associations.

A key strand of the Accelerating the global development of women in rugby 2017-25 strategy, the scholarship programme objectives aim to support talented women worldwide to further develop their rugby leadership potential and ensure that rugby is a global leader in sport.
