Giving West Aspire Conference Scholarship

Giving West has joined the Perth Convention Bureau’s Aspire Program to deliver the 2015 Giving West Aspire Conference Scholarship.

Now in it's second year, the scholarship will award a grant of $7,000 to an individual representing a WA Not-for-Profit organisation, assisting in professional development through attendance at a relevant international conference in their field.

The international conference must have the potential to be staged in Western Australia, and applicants must present the case as to why it should be.

The scholarship will cover the recipient’s flights, accommodation and registration to the conference up to the value of $7,000.


 John Poynton AM, Chairman Giving West

The Giving West Aspire Scholarship – run under the auspices of Perth Convention Bureau’s Aspire Program – is an initiative that is open to all WA Not-for-Profit (NFP) organisations .

The Award offers the recipient the chance to broaden their knowledge and networks by attending an International Conference. On returning to WA, the scholarship recipient will share learnings with relevant stakeholders, and outline opportunities for WA that they may have uncovered.

I encourage NFPs that think their organisation and the WA community will benefit from this initiative, to embrace the program which promotes collaboration, education and knowledge sharing.
