APPLICATION NOW OPEN FOR SCHOLARSHIPS TO SUPPORT LEADERS THROUGH THE DIRECTORS COLLEGE

The Directors College is pleased to offer two scholarships that support the journey to becoming an inspiring and impactful business leader and board member.

  • THE BOARD DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship is open to candidates who identify themselves as coming from groups that are underrepresented on corporate Boards. These groups include but are not limited to: women; visible minorities; and Indigenous peoples.

  • THE COVID-19 IMPACT SCHOLARSHIP

This scholarship is open to individuals who can demonstrate that they and/or their organization has experienced detrimental financial impact resulting from COVID-19, and therefore in a disadvantaged position when seeking director education and in need of tuition assistance.

Each scholarship covers the registration cost for one module in the Chartered Director (C.Dir.) Program in 2020.

Candidates will be considered for every scholarship for which they select in their application and one scholarship will be awarded to an individual. Submission for scholarships is open from June 26 to August 28, 2020.

“We know the importance of having prepared and insightful directors who have the courage to ask important questions and the ability to collaborate in the boardroom,” says Dave Mammoliti, Managing Director, The Directors College.We welcome applicants who are forward-thinking, a change agent in their own right, and willing to tackle a broad range of challenges that modern boards face every day.”

All scholarships seek candidates with experience in but not exclusive to executive, leadership or governance roles, including both employment and volunteer positions, and demonstrated leadership in specific governance areas.

The Chartered Director (C.Dir.) program is a unique Directors Education program that raises the bar for professional standards and the dynamic relationship between corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.
