Announcing the AICD International Scholarships Program 2018

The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) regularly visits Singapore to hold their flagship International Company Directors Course. The course is based on global governance principles and covers directors’ duties, the international legal environment, risk and strategy, financial literacy and board effectiveness. The course underpins the AICD’s goal of making a difference in the quality of governance and leadership around the globe.


The AICD is pleased to announce the launch of their International Scholarship Program, offering one full scholarship place to each of the International Company Directors Courses in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai, and one full scholarship place to the Fiji Directors Course.


The scholarships are designed for directors, aspiring directors and community leaders who without financial support, would not be able to attend such governance training.


Who is eligible for these scholarships?


People of all nationalities are welcome to apply. To be eligible for the scholarship, each applicant must:


  1. Be a director, aspiring director or community leader of an organisation with an annual turnover of less than AUD$1 million;
  2. Describe why without the scholarship they would not be able to attend such training;
  3. Describe the benefits they would receive as an individual in undertaking such training;

How will people be notified they have been successful?


Successful applicants will be notified by email within two weeks of the application close date.
