Access a Fantastic Scholarship Opportunity with ACWA’s Community Leadership Program

ACWA is pleased to announce a fantastic development opportunity for recent graduates of its flagship Community Leadership Program (CLP).

The inaugural Andrew McCallum Leadership Scholarship will offer one lucky recipient $5,000 towards their future leadership development.

This scholarship, generously funded by the Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG), is designed to future-proof the community sector through developing its emerging leaders, and to give recipients a helping hand with pursuing their career aspirations. 

Scholarship applications are now open to 2017 and 2018 graduates of the program, with submissions due by Friday, September 13. The successful applicant will be notified in late October and will receive the Scholarship award at this year’s CLP Graduation event in November.

Thanks to the OCG, ACWA is proud to be able to offer this Scholarship to one CLP graduate each year over the next five years, which is just one more reason to consider enrolling in this transformative 7-month professional development journey that challenges your thinking and drives you to reach your highest leadership goals.
