HCV Non-Profit Fellowship
The Harvard Club of Victoria provides funding to up to 3 CEO's of non-profit organisations based in Victoria to attend the one week Harvard Business School program Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management ("SPNM") in Cambridge, Massachusetts in July. The A$14,000 award covers SPNM course fees (tuition and case materials, accommodation, and meals), as well as travel to and from Boston, including a side-trip to allow for visits to appropriate nonprofit organizations in North America.
The HCV Non-Profit Fellowship award is available to CEO's in service delivery organisations in the community service sector, with particular focus on:
- Alcohol and drug dependency
- Children, youth and families
- Family violence
- Housing and homelessness
- Indigenous services
- Mental health
- Refugee resettlement
These organisations must be based in Victoria, have DGR status and should have annual revenues over A$3 million. CEOs of industry associations (e.g. peak bodies), management support organisations, and consulting firms are not eligible.
