The Australian Scholarships Foundation has been a great service and resource in helping me to work towards becoming an effective board director. The access to quality programs helps ensure that each person has a valuable experience and provides pathways to material and knowledge that would otherwise be unattainable. Overall the process was smooth and well supported from submission through to attending. Since being provided with this opportunity I have been able to effectively implement some new strategies around risk management and improved our board meetings to ensure effective use of the time and resources we have available. Overall this has reduced our response times to board submissions and allowed for more informed decisions increasing the quality of the outcomes. The Australian Scholarships Foundation have been fantastic and a great resource to anyone looking to access quality programs.
