Australian Scholarships Foundation and the Origin Foundation have announced the inaugural round of Origin Foundation Scholarships which will fund much needed capacity building - education, training and development - for the directors, staff and volunteers of NFP organisations.  Origin Foundation will fund scholarships through ASF in the amount of $100,000 per year for two years. At the event titled "Skills for Stronger Communities" held in Sydney in October to launch this initiative an esteemed panel discussed what is needed in the NFP sector and why.  Panelists included:  Robert Fitzgerald AM - Commissioner, Productivity Commission, Lincoln Hopper - A/Executive Leader Employment Solutions for Mission Australia, Sue Murray - CEO National Breast Cancer Foundation and Les Hems - Director of Research at the Centre for Social Impact.
