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!

Applications and Enquiries

Applications for the 2019 Scholarships have now been awarded. Applications for the 2020 Scholarships will open later in the year.
