The TECT/Institute of Directors Bay of Plenty Branch (IoD BoP) NFP governance scholarships were established in 2021 to enable more NFP Trustees to improve their governance skills and experience through engagement with IoD BoP programmes. The cost for quality governance training is often a barrier to NFP’s but the value of the training would impact not only the governance but ongoing operational effectiveness of community organisations.
TECT and IoD BoP are offering 10 scholarships and 20 discounted attendances to the NFP Governance Essentials Courses in 2021. While dates are TBC, applicants are being sought now.
Applicants must apply and submit application by 30/04/2021 Scholarship recipients, and discounted attendance recipients will be selected and advised within two weeks.
To be eligible, the applicant must be a current Trustee of a NFP community organisation in the Tauranga/Western BOP district.
Applications must be endorsed by the chairperson/fellow board members of the organisation.
Applicants must complete the attached application form to demonstrate governance development commitment.
Those that are not selected for the scholarship will be offered a discounted rate for attendance.
