BREAKING NEWS: Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership on offer… could this be you?

This is exciting news: The Origin Foundation is sponsoring a Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership, and applications are now open!! This scholarship is designed to boost the long-term leadership and management capacity of the Australian NFP sector – so if you’re a leader or director in that sector, you could be in the running for the $40,000 scholarship package.

The Scholarship
The Fulbright Scholarship, valued at $40,000, is a unique opportunity for an emerging NFP leader (and possibly his or her family) to travel in the United States for up to four months to study and conduct research into leadership and the operations of US non-profit sector organisations.  This is a terrific opportunity to gain experiential learning by visiting organisations as well as attending a course in the US.

The Application
Applications are now being accepted for 2013 and will close on 20 August 2012 – but be warned: it’s a lengthy application process so you better get started now!

More details on application criteria and FAQs are available on the Australian Scholarships Foundation website or the Fulbright Commission’s websiteGood luck!!

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.
