Scholarships in governance training awarded to leaders with disability
The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) in partnership with Australian Network on Disability congratulates 108 successful governance scholarship candidates.
In February the AICD, in partnership with Australian Network on Disability, shared a round of governance education scholarships to support leaders with disability. The 2023 Disability Leadership Scholarship program was funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services and administered by the Australian Scholarships Foundation.
As part of the Disability Leadership Program, 200 full-fee scholarships will be offered over the next two years.
One hundred and eight recipients have been awarded full-fee places to participate in the AICD’s national governance education program. All 2023 winners have the opportunity to undertake one of three directorship courses offered by the AICD: either the Company Directors CourseTM, Foundations of Directorship CourseTM or Governance Foundations for Not-for-profit Directors.
The program is designed to encourage a mutual exchange, with educators, coordinators and experienced directors gaining insights into the lived experiences of people with disability in the workplace and on Boards.
The scholarship includes an annual AICD membership and Directorship Opportunities subscription.
