The Perpetual Foundation and JS Love Trust are funding the scholarships which will allow directors and chairs of not-for-profits to attend governance courses run by the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).

A research study by the Centre for Social Impact at the University of Western Australia and the Australian Scholarships Foundation has established links between the scholarship program and improved performance by individual directors and boards.

Applications are open until Monday, 27 October 2014.

The courses will be held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth in February 2015. For more information and to apply, visit




The Untold Stories of CQUniversity Graduates


CQUniversity is very aware that there are countless ‘Untold Stories’ of graduates who, thanks to their study at the University, are out in the community doing great things.

We’d like to record some of those stories to form a general repository for many CQUni communicators to draw from, showing ‘the difference we make’ in speeches, news releases, ads, funding submissions, brochures etc.

We don’t mind if you are a recent or distant past-grad, or if you took years to complete your studies or even if you just scraped through, we just want to be able to show that skills developed through your education at CQUni, are now being used to improve your life and the lives of others.

If you’re out there making a difference in the world thanks to the time you spent at CQUniversity, we want to hear from you.
