Pink Belt Scholarships: Apply NOW!

Applications are now open for Pink Belt Scholarships: All expenses associated with one year of Taekwondo training including uniform and equipment covered for a woman living in Australia who could benefit from this gift of empowerment.

In addition we have two scholarships being offered by a Taekwondo school in the US. Details below.

Who can apply:

Applications will be accepted from the instructors/owners of Taekwondo schools or clubs ONLY. Scholarship funds will be paid direct by Australian Taekwondo to the club or school where the scholarship beneficiary intends to train in two $1,000 instalments. One on December 31, 2019 and one on June 30, 2020.

Taekwondo clubs: Find women in your community who could benefit from learning Taekwondo but cost prevents them from participating.
