NFP Scholarships to Harvard Business School
2 February 2016 at 9:28 am
The Harvard Club of Victoria is offering Fellowships for Not for Profit CEOs which will send up to three executives to the US Harvard Business School in 2016.
The Fellowships offer the Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM) course from 17 to 23 July this year.
Applications open on 2 February and close on 13 March.
The $14,000 NFP Fellowship covers course fees (tuition and case materials, accommodation, and meals), travel to and from Boston, and a short study tour to visit to appropriate Not for Profit organisations in North America.
The HCV Non-Profit Fellowship award is available to CEOs in service delivery organisations in the community service sector, with particular focus on alcohol and drug dependency, children, youth and families, disability, family violence, housing and homelessness, indigenous services, mental health, and refugee resettlement.
The Harvard Club said organisations must be based in Victoria, have deductible gift recipient (DGR) status and should have annual revenues over $3 million. CEOs of industry associations, such as peak bodies, management support organisations, and consulting firms are not eligible.
Chair of Harvard Club of Victoria Non-Profit Fellowship Committee, Alice Hill, said that the program had been running for 16 years.
“We began by focusing on the disability sector and two years ago broadened the program to include the wider community sector,” Hill said.
“We have now sent 30 CEOs to Harvard; the feedback from the CEOs has been uniformly excellent and we are confident that the Fellowship provides an outstanding leadership development experience for Not for Profit leaders.
“Our aim is to help them make an even bigger impact in the community service sector in future years.”
The 2015 Harvard Club of Victoria Fellows were Carmel Guerra of the Centre for Multicultural Youth, Paul Ronalds of Save The Children and Simon Ruth of The Victorian AIDS Council.
