Welcome. Please use this form to submit a 2016 Scholarship Expression of Interest.

In 2016 FRRR continues to support networking and professional development for the Community Foundation sector.

One way that FRRR delivers on this is through the provision of Scholarships that assist with travel and registration costs to the National Community Foundation Forum.

In 2016 FRRR is offering a limited number of partial and full scholarships. Priority will be given to Community Foundations who have greater travel costs. FRRR’s preference is to support only one representative from a Community Foundation, in order to share support across a larger number of Community Foundations.


·        Be an employee or Board member of a rural, regional or remote based Community Foundation in Australia.
·        Participate in the entire forum.


·        Applicants must demonstrate financial need – provision of audited financials and a current financial year-to-date profit and loss statement and balance sheet is required.
·        Applicants must demonstrate ability and their plans to share the learnings with their Board and leadership team.
Scholarship requests must be submitted on this form by the due date: Monday 1 August 2016.
Late requests will not be considered.
