Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) recently had the privilege of awarding a record-breaking 44 Master of Business Administration scholarships to deserving candidates in the charitable not-for-profit sector. The scholarships (17 fully funded and 27 half funded) are generously funded by Kaplan Business School and are collectively worth over $800,000. This is a unique offering which will provide valuable management education to the recipients and their employing organisations.
This is an incredible opportunity for the scholarship recipients to gain practical management skills that will allow them to develop their capability to lead and inspire others and increase their social impact.
ASF’s CEO Amy Lyden says, “These 44 MBA scholarships represent our single biggest offering in our 6 years of operation. This is a huge investment in the leadership capability of the scholarship recipients’ not-for-profit organisations. We are proud partners with Kaplan on this initiative and are incredibly grateful for their generosity.”
Kaplan Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Rob Regan says, "Kaplan respects the critical role that NFP organisations hold in our community and we are delighted to be partnering with Australian Scholarships Foundation to support this sector. By giving 44 talented, hardworking students the chance to grow their knowledge and hopefully reach their career goals, we are living up to our vision of building futures one success story at a time. Kaplan looks forward to welcoming these new students to the MBA program and we will be working with them to ensure that this course helps their day-to-day work and positively impacts their organisation."
