Apply now: Disability Leadership Scholarship Program 2022

Applications close Sunday 24 July 2022 11:59 pm | Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), in partnership with the Australian Network on Disability

Inclusion, diversity and equity require leaders with disability to be part of decision making across organisations.

 

Without Board and Executive representation, businesses are not making informed decisions with true market representation.

 

The Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Australian Network on Disability are partnering to support leaders with disability by providing an opportunity to uplift their governance knowledge. In the first round of the national Disability Leadership Program (DLP), 85 full-fee scholarships are being funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

 

The application process will be managed by the Australian Scholarships Foundation as the facilitating partner.

 

Scholarship recipients will undertake the Company Directors Course or the Foundations of Directorship course at AICD. Successful applicants will be provided with a number of course dates between November 2022 and June 2023 from which to choose.

 

In addition to the course, scholarship holders will receive a complimentary one-year:

  • > AICD Membership
  • > Directorship Opportunities subscription, Australia’s foremost listing platform which provides the widest choices for directorship positions

 

To help maximise board career opportunities, the program will also work with existing directors to build disability confidence through Leader-to-Leader Conversations facilitated by Australian Network on Disability.
