2015 Fish Scholarship

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, in 2014 we developed a special initiative, the Fish Scholarship, to support individuals working at emerging or small non-profit organisations.

This scholarship is 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. For more information about the course, visit the FIA website here.

The Fish Scholarship will be open to Australian fundraisers with less than three years professional experience. In line with our focus of teaching and educating emerging and small non-profits about fundraising and marketing, applicants must be working with organisations with a turnover of less than $500,000 p/y.

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.
