2019 Young Leaders Forum Scholarships

Applications close 1 July

Young Leaders Forum

With the aim of empowering the next generation of not-for-profit leaders, ASF has once again joined forces with McKinsey & Company to offer scholarships to McKinsey Academy’s Young Leaders Forum this year. Scholarship recipients will join a large cross-industry cohort of likeminded leaders to take part in this global leadership development program.

The Young Leaders Forum provides participants with the necessary skills, ways of thinking, and insights to become a better leader in a world of accelerating disruptive change, by maintaining a radical focus on what is within their control.

"I can honestly say that I have been blown away by the whole experience...To have had the opportunity to participate in this forum, network with other young leaders and dedicate time to myself and my development has been a truly incomparable experience.

"McKinsey Academy fostered such a powerful atmosphere of trust and sharing during the forum that we were and still are having very meaningful and vulnerable conversations and really tackling our own development areas in a supportive yet challenging group. The calibre of guests speakers and topics open for discussion was also exceptional and unlike anything else I have seen," - Sally Davies of Royal Far West, a 2018 scholarship recipient.

The Young Leaders Forum is designed to benefit emerging high potential future leaders, who typically have between 7 and 12 years of work experience, and are making the transition into people leadership roles, as well as taking on more responsibility for driving the strategy and execution of their organisations. CEOs of small NFPs, social enterprises or start-ups may also find the course beneficial, as they start to build their organisations and manage people.

The Young Leaders Forum is a blended program, consisting of a four-day workshop in Sydney while the rest of the program is completed remotely over several weeks between August and October. 

Applicants Australia-wide are welcome to apply.
