the words social change in a circle of house icons

The Westpac Social Change Fellowship supports the development of people from any sector with the drive to create better lives for all Australians. 10 Fellowships of up to $50,000 will be awarded to individuals who have the vision and commitment to deliver an initiative that will improve the wellbeing of Australians.

The Fellowship is designed to give recipients time and space to develop the skills, knowledge and networks needed to accelerate their growth as a social innovator. This may involve travel study tours, work experience, research or building stronger connections that will directly enhance their ability to lead positive social change.

If your application is successful you will receive up to $50,000. This funding will help you embark on your own bespoke development journey, over a maximum six month period.

The Fellowship could cover:

  • Travel and accommodation costs (overseas and/or domestic)
  • Expenses relating to the experience
  • Reasonable personal expenses
  • Costs for relief in current employment (depending on need)

Beyond the Fellowship, you will also have lifelong support through the Westpac 100 Scholars Network, where you will gain access to invaluable networking, learning and development opportunities.

Applications open: 11 July 2018.

Applications close: 20 August 2018.
