Would you like $50,000 to help change the world? Then these Social Change Fellowships are for you

If you’re passionate about making positive social change happen in Australia, this could change your life.

Applications are now open for 2020 Westpac Social Change Fellowships. Ten Fellowships valued up to $50,000 each are available.

The Social Change Fellowship is designed to give you the time and space to develop the skills, knowledge and networks to accelerate your growth as a social innovator, helping to solve some of the most pressing social issues facing the world today.

Your bespoke personal and professional development plan may involve:

  • traveling abroad to investigate similar social programs
  • development courses
  • engaging with global thought leaders and industry experts
  • research
  • work experience, or
  • building stronger connections that will directly enhance your ability to lead social change.

As part of the Fellowship, you’ll also get ongoing support from other Social Change Fellows who understand the unique challenges in the social sector, and opportunities to collaborate with the wider Westpac 100 Scholars Network.

Even though it’s funded by a massive, unethical corporation, this is a potentially life-changing program for social innovators from all walks of life – and working in any sector – who are looking to increase their leadership capabilities and social impact.

If that’s you, apply today. And if you know someone who could benefit from this Fellowship, nominate them!

There’s also a webinar on 17 July at 3pm if you’s like more details and to hear from a Social Change Fellow.
