The Westpac Social Change Fellowship gives you the rare chance to focus solely on yourself and your development. You’re probably already changing lives through your work, but this is your chance to further enhance your learning and skills, expand your networks, and explore new opportunities. Ten Fellowships valued up to $50,000 each are available to accelerate your growth as a social innovator.
The Fellowship gives you the opportunity to embark on a personal and professional development journey, allowing you to really explore your leadership potential. From overseas research and travel to development courses and work experience. The leadership development program will also give you hands-on professional coaching advice to really help you bring your ideas for social change to life.
As a Westpac Social Change Fellow, you’ll become part of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network. Lifelong membership to this network gives you access to one of Australia’s most diverse meetings of like-minds. All the Social Change Fellows who have come before you are ready and willing to help you on your journey. That means you will have a sounding board for your ideas, a support crew who understand your struggles and there to celebrate your wins, no matter how small.
“I love that this fellowship is about growing the innovator not the project. It is an investment in developing the game changers, giving us the space and time to grow and connect with the world.” – Mary Freer, Westpac Scholar, 2016 Social Change Fellow
