2020 and 2021 have been an unprecedented period exemplified by dramatic social, economic and cultural disruption. The impact of COVID-19 on Australia’s 600,000 plus social purpose organisations has seen the $146 billion-dollar sector fighting for funding, volunteers and in many cases, survival.

Helen Macpherson Smith Trust and Melbourne Business School are delighted to partner to support the recovery of the social purpose sector through the provision of dedicated scholarships across a range of our short courses. These scholarships will enable social purpose leaders to gain skills and adapt during this period of disruption and support some of Australia’s most critical organisations.

Eligibility: Applicants of the above named programs, who are in the For-Purpose sector.
