Change Our Game Scholarship Program - EOI
The Change Our Game Scholarship Program provides funding to assist women to access professional learning and development opportunities to enhance skills in sport and recreation leadership and management.
In order to be eligible for a Change Our Game Scholarship, nominated candidates must:
Identify as a woman
Be aged 18 years or over
Live in Victoria
Be currently involved in either a paid or volunteer capacity in sport (or be able to demonstrate previous employment or volunteer experience in sport for Category 5 nominees whose role has been impacted by COVID- 19)
Apply through an organisation, not as an individual.
The aim of this program is to provide funding to assist women to access professional learning and development opportunities to enhance skills in sport and recreation leadership management. Please note - this is an individual professional development opportunity however only LSV can apply on behalf of any individuals interested in a submission. Therefore we suggest this is best suited to first being given consideration by LSV’s Membership Development team to first determine how LSV wish to coordinate any submission. LSV will be required to answer questions on the behalf of each individual as part of the application, along with a letter from LSV stating their support for the nominated candidate and have the candidate provide a CV supporting the application. The program will fund professional development activities run by recognised entities of the department that are aimed at enhancing skills in sport and recreation leadership and management. These activities may include, but are not limited to:
Organisational governance training
Working with boards and committees
Leadership skills and management training
Project or event management
Sports administration training
Attending conferences and workshops.
