Congratulations to our 2019 Fulbright Scholarship Recipient

On 28 February, the Australian-American Fulbright Commission officially announced the recipients of its 2019 Australian-American Scholarships at Parliament House in Canberra, and simultaneously celebrated the 70th anniversary of the scholarships and the largest cohort of recipients in that time.

Among this year's awardees was Mr Adam Davids of CareerTrackers, who was recognised as the 2019 recipient of the Fulbright Professional Scholarship in NonProfit Leadership, sponsored by Perpetual and supported by the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF). Adam is a proud Aboriginal Australian and descendant of the Wiradjuri people in western New South Wales. As the Director, Learning at CareerTrackers he is supporting thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to obtain a university degree, pursue professional employment, become leaders of industry and role models for future generations.

The annual Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership award is designed to provide an opportunity for a leader in the not-for-profit sector to undertake research in the United States for 3-4 months. Each individual scholarship is valued up to $30,000 for research and professional development in the U.S.

With his Fulbright scholarship, Adam plans to analyse the pathway to generate sustainable jobs for under-represented minorities by studying leading NGOs and historic institutions in the U.S. He will build a Global Alliance between INROADS (his host organisation), CareerTrackers and other NGOs across the U.S. to create a professional jobs consortium for under-represented minorities and unlock ongoing collaboration with a vision to elevate the social and economic impact of organisations and their beneficiaries.

Congratulations to Adam and the 2019 Fulbright Scholarship recipients!
