This program is all about you. And what you need to grow as a leader.
Ten Fellowships, valued up to $50,000 each, are available to individuals from any sector who are leading positive social change. Successful recipients will have the rare opportunity to invest the funding into their own personal growth and leadership development.
Each successful recipient will design and undertake a bespoke development plan, which may involve traveling abroad or locally to investigate similar social programs, development courses, research or work experience.
And you are never alone. You’ll forge strong connections with other social innovators who will have your back, listen to your ideas and celebrate your wins. You also become part of the W100 Network – a diverse and collaborative community of some of Australia’s brightest and boldest.
Westpac Scholars are everyday people with the drive to help shape a better future. Are you the next Westpac Scholar?
“The Social Change Fellowship has been a unique opportunity for me to focus on learning and improving myself both personally and professionally. It has not only provided me a wonderful network of changemakers across Australia, but has also given me the opportunity to travel and learn from global experts in my field of startups, social enterprise and impact investing and has also been instrumental in giving me a clarity of purpose for the rest of my life.”
