Governance Scholarships for NFPs
Thursday, 1st November 2012 at 11:08 am

Directors and senior managers in Not for Profit (NFP) organisations are being offered full scholarships to undertake a Certificate in Governance course.

Chartered Secretaries Australia (CSA), the Origin Foundation and Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) are offering five full scholarships, with a total value of almost $15,000, to directors and senior managers in Not for Profit (NFP) organisations to undertake CSA's Certificate in Governance for Not for Profits course.

According to CSA’s chief executive Tim Sheehy, “CSA, along with Origin Foundation and ASF, is thrilled to jointly offer these scholarships, particularly during this time of significant regulatory change. Now is the time to embed good governance in NFP organisations and I encourage all senior managers in NFPs to apply."

“The whole NFP landscape is changing — NFPs are operating in increasingly competitive and scrutinised environments. Further education will not only provide NFP leaders with critical knowledge, but also interaction with peers and completion of the coursework will ensure they have a wealth of ideas and resources to draw on.

“Our Certificate provides a strong foundation for creating good governance frameworks within a specific NFP context. With a focus on the duties of those leading NFP organisations, the course also provides practical tools for managing boards, financial reporting and disclosure to members,” Sheehy said.

The scholarships for the Certificate in Governance for Not-For-Profits are open to directors, committee members or senior managers in charitable NFPs and is available through the ASF.

Applicants are required to complete and submit an application form along with a letter of support from the chair of their organisation. In the form, applicants must explain how the successful completion of the course will benefit their organisation.

Open to all charitable NFPs, organisations with programs that maximise the education prospects of current and future generations of young people or create employment-readiness training and work experience opportunities for the long-term unemployed are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are now open, with the first round of scholarships closing 4 November 2012.  Further rounds of scholarships will be available throughout all of 2013.

Further information including the application forms is available at www.scholarships.org.au.
