HCV Non-Profit Fellowship


The Harvard Club of Victoria provides funding to up to 3 CEOs of non-profit organisations based in Victoria to attend the one-week Harvard Business School program Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management ("SPNM") in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in July. The A$14,000 award covers SPNM course fees (tuition and case materials, accommodation, and meals), as well as travel to and from Boston, including a side-trip to allow for visits to appropriate nonprofit organisations in North America.
The HCV Non-Profit Fellowship award is available to CEOs in service delivery organisations in the community service sector, with particular focus on:
  • Alcohol and drug services
  • Children, youth and families
  • Disability
  • Family violence
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Indigenous services
  • Mental health
  • Refugee resettlement
These organisations must be based in Victoria, must have DGR status and should have annual revenues over A$3 million. CEOs of industry associations (e.g. peak bodies), management support organisations, and consulting firms are not eligible.
