Two major philanthropic trusts are collaborating to offer up to 320 scholarships to help not-for-profit organisations enhance their governance.
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 www.scholarships.org.au
