Institute of Community Directors Australia (ICDA) Diploma of Governance Scholarships


Part-scholarships of $1,000 by the Institute of Community Directors Australia (ICDA) are now available on a rolling basis for community leaders. Hundreds of not-for-profit leaders will be given the chance to win part-scholarships to complete the ICDA Diploma of Governance. The full cost of the Diploma is $4,500, comprising enrolment, assessment and administration. Scholarship recipients will need to arrange payment of the remaining fee of $3,500.

While ICDA have offered scholarships in the past for Australia's premier diploma-level governance qualification, currently they are able to offer more opportunities to more individuals across more sectors, providing a leg-up to the most under-represented groups in the country, including:

  • Young people on boards
  • Women
  • Community health
  • Rural and regional
  • Going green
  • Board diversity
  • Faith-based charities
  • Indigenous Australia
  • Local government
  • Sports
