AICD International Scholarships Update

In March this year, the AICD international division launched the International Scholarships 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 for the Fiji Directors Course.

The international scholarships are designed for directors, aspiring directors and community leaders of organisations with an annual turnover of less than AU$1 million who without financial support, would not be able to undertake such governance training.

The AICD is proud to announce Ms Cheryl Thornton as the scholarship recipient for the Dubai International Company Directors Course to be held this October. Cheryl is Vice-Chair of the all-female board of e7 Daughters of the Emirates, Promise of a Generation (POAG), a volunteer organisation aimed at developing the next generation of female leaders in the United Arab Emirates. Over the next five years the group aim to grow membership across the region to 3000+ socially responsible women who mentor, support and learn from each other. As a relatively new organisation this course will help Cheryl  to define the roles and responsibilities of the board and to establish a robust governance framework to ensure the longevity and success of the organisation. As Regional Head of HR for The Fred Hollows Foundation in Dubai, this training will also enable Cheryl to strengthen her ability to support the Foundations’ board of directors in her senior executive capacity.

The next round of AICD International Scholarships open in September for courses held January – June 2019. Please visit the AICD Scholarships page for updates.
