CEOs from Victorian non-profit disability providers are encouraged to apply for the Harvard Club of Victoria’s Non-Profit Fellowship program

The fellowship program will support three CEOs from the Victorian community service sector to attend a week-long Strategic Perspectives in Non-profit Management course at Harvard Business School in Cambridge, Massachusetts in July 2022.

The Strategic Perspectives in Non-profit Management course is designed to prepare non-profit leaders to strengthen management and accountability within their organisations, while leading the evolution needed to create effective, high performing organisations.

The HCV Non-Profit Fellowship provides AU$14,000 of funding per participant to cover course fees, accommodation, meals, travel to and from Boston, plus a study tour of non-profit organisations in North America.

A number of CEOs from NDS member organisations have been successful recipients of the Fellowship in previous years, and found the experience to be particularly enriching and engaging.
