NFP Fulbright Scholarship 2016 Applications Open
Thursday, 7th May 2015 at 11:09 am

Applications for the 2016 Fulbright Scholarship in Not for Profit leadership are again open, offering an emerging leader the opportunity to undertake a program of research and professional development in the United States.

Sponsored by the Origin Foundation and supported by the Australian Scholarships Foundation the scholarship allows participants to undertake a three to four month professional development program.

“Valued at up to $40,000, the scholarship provides an opportunity for personal and professional development and broader impact through research, experiential learning or management training at an approved U.S. institution or charitable organisation,” CEO of Australian Scholarships Foundation, Amy Lyden said.

“Applicants will delve into research or professional development that addresses contemporary issues of relevance, innovation, knowledge development, and impact on policy and practice in the Not for Profit sector across any discipline or service area.

“Innovative applications which are able to articulate key issues that have the potential to lead to ongoing collaborative partnerships, develop skills and capabilities of the person and the NFP sector, and which lead to a stronger bilateral relationship between Australia and the United States will be highly regarded.

“This scholarship attracts candidates of an extremely high calibre.”

The  inaugural scholarship recipients in 2013 were Dr Tessa Boyd-Caine and  Andrew Tyndale. The 2014 recipient was Karen Hart, and the 2015 recipient was Annette Stewart.

Applications close Saturday 1 August 2015.
