Young Professionals Scholarship Fund

The Govern YP scholarship fund is designed to support young professionals (age 35 and under) interested in effective boardroom governance either in the corporate or non-profit sector. It will be administered by Govern for Impact and is designed to encourage participation in the Govern for Impact annual conference (which will be virtual in 2021) by alleviating some of the costs associated with attending the annual conference. Attending our annual conference is a chance to learn about best governance practices from established leaders in the industry and share insights and experiences with other current and aspiring governance professionals.

Completion of the following application is required for all those interested in being considered as a recipient of the Govern YP Scholarship Fund. All applicants must be between the ages of 18-35, on or before December 31, 2021. 

Govern for Impact thanks all applicants for their interest; however, only those who meet criteria demonstrating the greatest need will be granted a scholarship. Applicants will be considered based on a variety of factors, including (but not limited to): financial need, distance required to travel in order to attend the conference, level of governance related interest and involvement.

Successful applicants will be notified of their award on or before June, 2021. They will be reimbursed for the conference registration fee for young professionals of $200 USD. Scholarship recipients will be required to write a blog post for the Govern for Impact newsletter and social media following the conference, by August 30, 2021 to cover key learnings from the conference, motivation for attending and the experience of the conference learning environment.
