Study opportunities for not-for-profit sector

April 15, 2015

Dr Megan Paull Opportunities for people working in the not-for-profit sector to enhance their careers have emerged through new scholarships announced at Murdoch University.

Murdoch’s School of Management and Governance is partnering with the Australian Scholarship Foundation and the Bankwest Foundation to provide three full scholarships in one of the School’s Graduate Certificate Programs.

Not-for-profit researcher and Director of Postgraduate Research in the School, Dr Megan Paull, said the scholarships represented an exciting step forward.

“These scholarships recognise the value of quality leadership in the sector by offering access to postgraduate education for leaders in the field who might not otherwise have the opportunity to study,” Dr Paull said.

The scholarships are available in Semester 2 for the following programs:

These courses are available through Murdoch's School of Management and Governance and the Sir Walter Murdoch School of Public Policy and International Affairs.

Australian Scholarship Foundation CEO, Amy Lyden said many community organisations simply do not have the capacity to fund professional development for their people.

“Yet with deepening constraints on funding, changes in the regulatory environment and the misguided expectations from donors to not invest in ‘administration costs’, the need for education and training is greater than ever,” she said

“The Bankwest Foundation is one of the few foundations that recognises this critical need.”
