Stanford University is one of the world's leading universities. Located in Northern California USA, Stanford teaches leaders to be pioneers of the modern frontier, to think critically, challenge assumptions and change the rules of competition. The Stanford Australia Foundation (SAF) is a not-for-profit organisation with the mission to enable more Australians to share the exciting experience of a Stanford education for the benefit of the Australian community. This year, with the support of the Dyson Bequest, SAF is offering two scholarships for study in the 2018 calendar year.
SAF scholarship recipients must be employed by an Australian non-profit organisation with Deductible Gift Recipient status 1 (DGR1), and be an Australian citizen, have permanent residency or temporary residency in Australia.
Please note that candidates are required to be in organisational leadership roles. Those who are solely in non-executive directors or board roles are not eligible.
The 2018 Stanford Australia Foundation Scholarships each include up to AUD20,000 (for course fees and economy travel) for a NFP executive to attend a Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) executive course and undertake a study tour. Six months of mentoring from a Stanford alumni living in Australia will also be offered. Candidates can choose their preferred course from the GSB offering although we are pleased to advise that the Executive Program for Non-Profit Leaders and the Executive Program in Social Entrepreneurship are being offered again in 2018. In considering their application candidates should review course outlines. The Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders is a six-day residential program designed to further the professional development of leaders in the nonprofit sector. The Executive Program in Social Entrepreneurship is a six-day residential program designed to help social entrepreneurs take enterprises and innovative models to the next level.
