New Women's Governance Scholarships

In a move to further break through the barriers of unconscious bias, cultural and structural issues that often preclude women from leadership positions, The Institute of Community Directors has partnered with the Women's Leadership Institute Australia (WLIA) and is offering $1000 scholarships for women towards Diploma of Business (Governance) enrolments.

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit and likely impact for the communities served by each recipient.

Successful scholarship applicants will receive:

  • A $1000 fee reduction for enrolments in the Diploma of Business (Governance). The reduced enrolment cost for scholarship recipients is $3495 (inc GST)
  • An iPad mini, pre-loaded with course materials
  • Membership of the Institute of Community Directors Australia
  • Access to the Institute of Community Directors Australia's extensive suite of online governance resources

Students who go on to complete the Diploma of Business (Governance) will earn:

  • Fellowship of the Institute of Community Directors Australia
  • Australia's only accredited qualification for not-for-profit governance

This is an exciting scholarship opportunity designed to increase women's participation on community boards, right around Australia.
