Scholarship details

Our scholarships provide free or discounted access to our training programs. In some cases, scholarship recipients can also receive mentoring. Our scholarship program does not include payments to cover projects costs or living expenses.

Scholarship assessment

We assess scholarship applications on the basis of need. While we approve hundreds of scholarships every year we cannot approve every application. If you are unsuccessful we typically offer you discounted enrolment in our training courses to help reduce the burden and make the training more affordable.

What details to provide

Please tell us about your intended use of social capital, whether you are a student or employed to conduct research, whether you are working for an NGO or government department, and why a scholarship is necessary or would significantly assist you.

Most people write about 200 words, and we request no more than 500 words. Please provide any details you feel are relevant.

Assessment timeframe

It normally only takes us a few days for us to assess your scholarship application. We will contact you on the email you provide.

You can apply at any time of year.
