The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) with support from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Office for Women are offering a program of governance education scholarships to support emerging and experienced female directors from regional, rural and remote Australia.
The program will provide opportunities for suitably qualified women from different backgrounds who face additional barriers to education and leadership participation.
The AICD welcomes applicants who reflect the diversity of Australia’s population and encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, culturally diverse women, women with disability and those in the not-for-profit sector to apply.
The first round of the program is offering the following courses to be undertaken in 2022:
- 30 full-fee scholarships to undertake the AICD’s Company Directors Course
- 24 full-fee scholarships to undertake the AICD’s Foundations of Directorship program.
Each scholarship includes subsidised travel and accommodation to the course location, a one-year membership to the AICD and a subscription to the AICD’s Directorship Opportunities service. Options to attend courses online are also available.
For more information and to apply, go to the Australian Scholarships Foundation website.
Applications close on Friday 29 October 2021.
