Eight directors of charitable organisations from across Australia will receive scholarships from the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) to attend director and board development programs. The training programs awarded include: two full scholarships for the Company Directors Course; two full scholarships for the Foundations of Directorship suite; and four full scholarships for The Not-for-Profit Board (an In-Focus program).
Primarily reliant on fundraising to achieve their social objectives, charitable organisations often find it difficult, if not impossible, to allocate a budget for their board’s professional development. The scholarships awarded supported ASF’s mission to build the capacity of NFP organisations. A list of scholarship recipients, some of which are Philanthropy Australia Members and Associates, is available at www.scholarships.org.au.
