Charity Scholarship

Fish Scholarship

We are delighted to announce our scholarship recipient for 2020 is Novela Corda from Key into Australia. Read more about Novela.  Applications for 2021 will open mid-year.

Here at Fish Community Solutions we firmly believe in the power of education and our business was built around the philosophy: Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.

As such, we’ve been offering our special education initiative, the Fish Scholarship, since 2014 to support individuals working at small non-profit organisations.  In 2020, the chosen scholarship recipient will be awarded:

  • a place at the Fundraising Institute of Australia’s Fundraising Essentials course either in a virtual class format in November 2020 or via the online delivery mode
  • a complimentary 12 months Advanced Membership to the Small Non-Profits Alliance.

The FIA’s Essentials course is the ‘101’ of fundraising, teaching you what you really need to know about fundraising, all wrapped neatly into a one-day course. For more information about the course, visit the FIA website here.

The Scholarship winner will also be given a complimentary Advanced Membership for 12 months to the Small Non-Profits Alliance, an online community specifically dedicated for small charities across Australia. The Small Non-Profits Alliance is also an initiative of Fish Community Solutions.

The Fish Scholarship is open to those working with an Australian charity with limited professional fundraising experience. In line with our focus of supporting and educating small non-profits, applicants must be working with organisations that are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission and have an annual revenue less than $1,000,000.

This initiative is an opportunity for Fish to demonstrate our belief that all charities, no matter what their size, deserve the support and guidance to ensure they can become financially sustainable and have the best chance at success.
