The  $35,000 Maureen Kerridge scholarship is now open.

It's aimed at mid-to senior executive women in advertising, media and television to study an executive-level course of their own choosing, anywhere in the world.

The scholarship is in memory of Maureen Kerridge, the first woman to run an Australian television network, Seven, and the first female CEO of a free-to-air television network in the world.

She died in 2020 and was posthumously made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for her significant service to the television industry, the arts and charitable organisations.
