Improve your performance - apply for a Scholarship!

AIM WA has offered an annual Scholarship program for over 25 years. The program provides an excellent mechanism for the Institute to support the broader community and continue to work towards its vision of shaping management, leadership and organisational excellence in Australia and our region.

AIM WA recognises the work of not-for-profit (NFP) organisations and aspiring professionals in the community, wishing to embark on professional development.

The Scholarships provide funding for training for organisations and individuals that can be used for the participation on a selection of Open Programs offered by the Institute*. Across two categories the Scholarships are a unique opportunity to "train up", whether you're looking for a qualification or to up-skill in a specific field, the extensive suite of Open Programs has something for everyone!

Testimonials from Past Winners

“The AIM WA Scholarship Program for not for profit organisations is a wonderful initiative, making first class training available to those who may not be able to benefit otherwise. Our team look forward to selecting programs which will benefit them personally as well as the Foundation, so we can help transform the health care of WA’s sick children and young people so they can live their healthiest and happiest lives.” 

Carrick Robinson
Chief Executive Officer
Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation


“The Smith Family has been a recipient of the AIM Scholarship for the past 10 years. The scholarship has enabled us to provide high quality training for team members to help develop their skills.

In this time we have been able to train up our Work, Health, and Safety representatives; support staff to develop their leadership and communications skills; build knowledge around setting and managing budgets; and training up new managers.

Coming into leadership a number of years ago I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of a Scholarship which enabled me to do The New Manager course. The skills I learnt and was able to put into practise were invaluable to me.

We can’t thank AIM WA enough for their on-going generosity and support of the Not for Profit Sector through these scholarships.”
