SelfWealth is delighted to announce its partnership with MoneyGirl, a financial literacy social enterprise helping young women take control of their finances and creating a supportive community in the process.
Through our partnership, it is with great pleasure that we are in the position to offer young women a fantastic opportunity to participate in MoneyGirl’s signature course, ‘First 6 Steps to Financial Independence’.
Here at SelfWealth, we are all about giving back to the community. We share MoneyGirl’s vision to empower those who seek to feel more confident and in control of their money. SelfWealth will support four places in the next MoneyGirl Financial Independence Course, which starts Saturday, 29th August. Two sponsored scholarships will be available to SelfWealth members.
The scholarships will be awarded to two young women chosen randomly from all applicants. As we believe in good community spirit, scholarship recipients do not need to be SelfWealth members. As a SelfWealth member you may nominate and apply on behalf of your daughter, girlfriend, partner, or niece. Ultimately, someone who you’d love to treat with the foundations to live a financially secure life!
Applications for the SelfWealth scholarships will end 8pm on Thursday, 20th August.

Feedback from MoneyGirl alumni
MoneyGirl has guided a range of women from diverse backgrounds through its Financial Independence Course with an outstanding reception. Here’s just some of the feedback from alumni who completed the course.
“I learned so much in EVERY SINGLE session. Each session has had an impact on the way I think about / spend / save / invest my money. I have switched my super (which no doubt has saved me $10,000s in the long run). It’s also started got me thinking about saving for a deposit, and having those important conversations with my partner!” – Alex, Sydney
“I have loved this course. Thanks so much! You’ve both been so incredible at presenting information in a way that’s easy to understand, no judgement and creating a supportive environment to ask questions and learn.” – Brianna, Canberra
“This has been one of the most valuable courses I have done at late, especially as I feel understanding finances as early as possible will set you up for security and success in the future. Loved it, feel like we should be learning this all at school but grateful we have programs like this to get us on track.” – Anna, Sydney
