Emerging Leaders Program 2019


AcademyGlobal (AG) in conjunction with leading academics from the University of Technology, Sydney invite high potential future leaders to apply for a half-scholarship position on The Emerging Leaders Program for the NFP Sector.


Scholarship Overview

Entering its 6th year, the ELP comprises a 5-day intensive course of study and is tailored to the needs of current and future leaders within the NFP sector. A major aim of the program is to ensure participants are able to immediately apply key learning’s back in the workplace, thus ensuring significant value is added to their organisation following the course.

To promote a high level of participant involvement and enable close interaction with the teaching faculty, the program will be limited to a maximum of 20 participants. The successful applicants are sourced from philanthropic organisations throughout Australia and New Zealand with the benefit of an ELP alumni group to enable ongoing networking between program alumni and faculty.

All tuition, program material, tools and templates are included in the fee. Over the course of the program, meals and breaks will be catered for, including a formal mid-week dinner with guest presenter. Transport and accommodation are to be arranged by the participants and their support organisations. A unique feature of this program is the option of one-on-one coaching sessions subsequent to the completion of the course.

Whilst the full program fee is $4,995, AcademyGlobal will fund applicants on a half-scholarship basis. This reduces the cost to $2,497.50. Scholarships will be awarded based on the strength of the participant’s application and the level of support that the sponsor’s organisations will provide to the participant on completion of the program.
