FIA Certificate in Fundraising Scholarship

The FIA Foundation is offering three Certificate in Fundraising Scholarships this year. Find out more here.

Scholarships have been awarded in recent years to dynamic and deserving recipients who have used the skills and knowledge learnt in the Certificate in Fundraising course to expand their fundraising knowledge and expertise. 

Scholarship Candidates Must: 

  • Be a member of FIA, with a current full individual or organisational membership.
  • Provide an endorsement letter from a professional referee stating benefits/likely outcomes of attending the course.
  • Provide an up to date copy of their resume with a completed application form
Applications for 2017 are now closed. 

Courses will only run in each state if sufficient registrations are received - if your scholarship application is successful you may choose to complete the Certificate in Fundraising in another state. The scholarship covers registration fees only, not travel costs.
