• Applications close at 5.00pm Sunday November 8th, 2020*

  • Applications will be reviewed and shortlisted applicants will be required to attend an interview

  • Interviews will be scheduled in November 2020

  • All applicants will be notified of the outcome by December 15, 2020

* Applications can only be received after the closing date where scholarships have not been filled



  • The selection criteria are detailed in the Program Overview document. Please read these carefully.

  • Complete each section of the application in full.

  • Type/print all answers clearly in space provided.

  • Only one letter of recommendation will be accepted.

  • The application must be signed by both the candidate and the employer, where applicable.

  • Nominees must have the full support of the organisation or corporation they represent. Individuals may nominate themselves.

  • A shortlist of applicants will be interviewed by a panel following the close of applications, with applicants informed of the outcome by December 15, 2020.

  • Attendance at the launch, opening and closing retreats and the graduation night is mandatory. Nominees must be able to attend the schedule of seminars to the minimum level set down. Those who fail to attend may be asked to withdraw.

  • For each program intake a balance is sought among participants in terms of gender, cultural diversity, location, private/public, profit/non-profit etc. Fairley Leadership Program is committed to selecting candidates from communities across the region. No individual or organisation should be discouraged from applying for economic reasons as some scholarships are available.

  • All nominations are subject to confidential evaluation.

  • Given the time commitments of the Fairley Leadership Program, and to be fair to the individual, their family and employer, it is unlikely that the panel will select a participant who is enrolled in a formal course of study (part-time degrees, diplomas etc.)

  • Many qualified candidates will not be chosen for the next Fairley Leadership Program because of size restrictions of each year’s group and the need for diversity in group composition. However, individuals not selected are strongly encouraged to re-apply in subsequent years.
