Fish Scholarship

Sign up for our updates so you can be the first to know when it’s launched.

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.  This scholarship provides a place for one talented, up and coming fundraiser at the FIA Fundraising Essentials Course, valued at $495.

The course is the ‘101’ of fundraising, teaching you what you really need to know about fundraising, all wrapped neatly into a one day course. The course will be offered in the winner’s nearest capital city or through the online delivery mode if preferred. For more information about the course, visit the FIA website here.

The Fish Scholarship is open to those working with an Australian charity with limited professional experience. In line with our focus of teaching and educating small non-profits about fundraising and marketing, 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 that we are not only here to give you advice, but to help educate you about becoming financially sustainable so your organisation can continue to do what you do best.

Hear from our previous Fish Scholars and how they benefited from their award.
