Young women aged between 18 and 23 will have the chance to be mentored by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
The competition, run by Young Scot, will see the successful candidate receive mentoring from the First Minister over a one year period.
The First Minister also called on women in leadership roles to become mentors and help create a generation of future leaders and greater gender balance in their organisations.
The First Minister said:
Equality for women is at the heart of the Scottish Government’s vision for an equal Scotland. I’m determined to play my personal part by becoming a mentor and I would urge other women in leadership roles to do the same.”
