Board scholarships awarded to directors of charitable organisations

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.
