AusMumpreneur Scholarship Program

The AusMumpreneur Scholarship Program was designed to support mums in business.

This program provides opportunities for women to be able to develop their business skills, connect with fellow business owners and gain advice and inspiration from mentors.  A number of scholarships are available each year to enable recipients to attend business conferences and participate in online courses.

Upcoming scholarship details are announced in our newsletter.



Government advocacy has become an important part of our role as Australia’s peak body for mums in small business, increasingly mumpreneurs are being recognised as the people who are driving Australian small business and leading the way in digital innovation.  In the last 12 months the number of women starting a business has doubled. And those women need a voice. When you’re working from home its often isolating and you can feel like no-one else really knows what your challenges are or how hard you’re working behind the scenes to make it all appear effortless.  Often even your family and friends don’t realise just how much of your heart and soul goes into getting a business idea successfully off the ground.
