Board Diversity Scholarship program

In 2010 we launched our national Board Diversity Scholarship program, jointly funded by the Federal Government. The scholarship program is aimed at supporting an increase in the number of women on Australian boards.

What is the scholarship program?

The Board Diversity Scholarship program awards 70 full-fee scholarships (not including accommodation and travel costs) to high-calibre women to undertake the Australian Institute of Company Directors' highly regarded Company Directors Course or Mastering the Boardroom program.

Scholarship recipients also receive complimentary 12-months membership to the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Victorian Women's Governance Scholarships

In 2012 we launched the Victorian Women's Governance Scholarships in partnership with the Victorian State Government. The program is aimed at increasing the skills, qualifications and confidence of Victorian women to enable them to join private, public and community sector boards and to effectively contribute as a Director.
