CALD2LEAD Board Diversity Scholarship


CALD2LEAD 2024 scholarship opportunity

We're excited to announce new 2024 scholarship opportunities, presented in partnership with CALD2LEAD.

Founded in 2019, CALD2LEAD provides Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) women with access to leadership development opportunities so that there is more diversity in society’s leadership and decision-making.

Together with CALD2LEAD, we're pleased to call for applications for a part-scholarship to undertake our acclaimed Diploma of Governance or Certified Community Director course.

The Diploma of Governance is a nationally recognised course, offered entirely online over 12 months. Students receive first-class governance training specifically tailored for the not-for-profit sector. You can learn more about the Diploma of Governance here.

The Certified Community Director is a new seven-unit micro-credential for community board members. The entire course is delivered through a learning management system, meaning you can study on your own time and at your own pace. Complete all seven units to become a Certified Community Director. You can learn more about the Certified Community Director course here.

What's on offer?

Multiple scholarships, providing approximately 80% discount on both the Diploma of Governance and the Certified Community Director course and reducing your fee to just $990 for the Diploma (full cost $4,500) and $200 for the Certified Community Director course (full cost $990).

Who is this for?

These scholarships, from CALD2LEAD, are available for women with a passion for community leadership from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities across Victoria.
