The Stanford Australia Foundation has awarded two scholarships to leaders in the Not for Profit sector for study in 2014 while applications are also open for next year’s scholarships.
Dr Di Winkler, CEO of the Summer Foundation, is the 2014 Stanford Australia Foundation Dyson Bequest Scholarship recipient.
This scholarship will enable Winkler to attend the six-week Stanford Executive Program (SEP) from June-August. The Summer Foundation aims to resolve the issue of young people in nursing homes.
Jonathan Nicholas,? CEO of Inspire Foundation, is the recipient of the 2014 Stanford Australia Foundation Scholarship to attend a Stanford Graduate School of Business executive program. Inspire Foundation is the organisation behind the youth mental health service ReachOut.com.
The Harvard Club of Victoria is now inviting applications for its Nonprofit Fellowships for 2014. Application materials are attached and are available on the Harvard Club of Victoria website, which can be viewed by clicking here.
The Club's Nonprofit Fellowship program has been expanded this year to cover the broader community service sector, with particular focus on the alcohol and drug dependency, children and families, disability, family violence, housing and homelessness, mental health, refugees resettlement and youth affairs areas.
The Foundation will be expanding the scale of the program and awarding up to three Fellowships each year. The awards are worth $12,000 each and enable the CEOs of up to three community service sector organisations to attend the one week program "Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management" at Harvard Business School.
The award covers course costs (tuition and case materials, accommodation and meals), and travel to and from Boston, including side visits to appropriate Not for Profit organisations in North America.
