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!!

Check this out, I'm in awe. My friend Ronni Kahn is at it again, disrupting the food supply chain, offering food security to the vulnerable. I've shared before about OzHarvest. When I first met Ronni ten years ago I knew she was special, but what she has achieved and continues to achieve truly blows my mind. She cares so much about the people that OzHarvest serves, and every person in her life, and gives her everything to make sure that no person needs to go hungry. The international expansion of OzHarvest is awesome, and this "take what you need" supermarket in Sydney is just brilliance. Repurposing and rehoming surplus food, keeping it out of landfill so that we all benefit and business overheads are lowered. Win. Win. Win. Love it! ... See MoreSee Less
