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.

Applications close on July 24, 2022.
