Indigenous Fellowship for Emerging Leaders
18 June 2013 at 10:57 am
Emerging Indigenous Leaders in Victoria are encouraged to apply for the Australian Communities Foundation’s fellowship.
Two leaders will be chosen as part of the leadership program which provides people with the support they need to achieve their vision for their communities.
The program has so far appointed three fellows and 10 emerging leaders in the years it has been running and has provided recipients with support and assistance with their plans and broader vision for improving the social, economic and emotional wellbeing of Indigenous communities in Victoria.
Expressions of interest from all backgrounds including the arts, community, business, health and sport will be accepted.
The Fellowship helps Indigenous communities to develop innovative responses to current issues and future challenges.
It supports Indigenous leaders, past, present and future, striving to achieve positive change for Indigenous Victorians and strengthening links between Indigenous and mainstream Australia.
Those taking part in the program will have access to mentoring, professional and personal development and the opportunity to improve their leadership skills as well as a $30,000 grant for a period of 12 months to assist with the development of identified personal and professional development goals and planning and implementing a project that will benefit their community.
Applications close July 1, 2013.
