We offer a variety of scholarships for Dare to Lead™ to help individuals and organisations enable brave leaders and create courageous cultures.
We are passionate about enabling brave leaders and creating courageous cultures in all areas of business, government, and community organisations. Having the opportunity to engage in leadership development can be an opportunity for individuals working in the not-for-profit sector, charities, volunteers in community organisations, or may have lost employment due to the pandemic and current global environment.
We are approached by many such leaders – eager to grow their courageous leadership capacity, but unable to self-fund the course fee. To accommodate this, each time we run a Dare to Lead™ program, we’ve done our best to make available a seat or two for such individuals that meet our scholarship criteria.

Selection Criteria Explained
As Brené Brown says, ‘Clear is Kind’, so here is an outline of our scholarship criteria and selection process we use to assess all applications:
- Leaders* that currently work or volunteer in, have a career history and abiding commitment to a community organisation, not for profit, charity or social enterprise.
- Leaders* that have lost their employment due to the global pandemic and are finding it difficult to energise their career prospects. Now feels like the right time to focus on self-development.
- Leaders* that have recently begun their own start-up business or entrepreneurs and want to grow in values-based leadership – living and leading with values that direct and motivate others to do their best and that inspires everyone to contribute to the greater good.
Our selection criteria for assessing the applications is simply to review each application on its own merit, ensuring that:
- The leader* genuinely meets the above scholarship criteria.
- The leader* is well-positioned and committed to capitalise on the program learnings to make a tangible impact in their leadership sphere.
- The leader* is the best fit for the available seat/s we have on offer in the upcoming program.
- The availability of seat/s for the partial and full scholarship, as this does vary from program to program.
*Leader: Brené Brown defines a leader as “anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential”.
