The scholarship program is suited to applicants set on pursuing postgraduate governance studies at any government-accredited tertiary institution around the world, and are based on both merit and financial need.

Successful applicants will receive payments to cover course fees of up to AUD$2,173 per subject, to a maximum of AUD$13,038 for the whole course.

The Chant Legacy Scholarship program has been running for three years and in that time 26 scholarships have been awarded.

“Practical skills and applied knowledge in governance have never been more valued by organisations and government departments worldwide. For many, these skills can pave the way to a career as a senior governance professional, senior manager or a board director”, said Tim Sheehy, Chief Executive of Governance Institute of Australia.

“As trustees of the Chant Legacy Scholarship, we are pleased to be able to encourage outstanding individuals to further their professional qualifications and careers in governance.”

Scholarship applications will be judged and awarded by an independent committee of widely respected governance professionals including the director of the UTS Centre for Corporate Governance, Professor Thomas Clarke, Julie Hare, higher education editor at The Australian and Governance Institute board member, Douglas Gration.
