Applications open for Australian Rural Leadership Program Course 25

11 August 2017

Applications are currently open for Australia’s iconic and challenging leadership development program announced Matt Linnegar, Chief Executive of the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation.

“We are currently looking for leaders from rural, regional and remote Australia, who are willing to be immersed in a series of unique experiences to develop their leadership capabilities,” said Matt.

The Australian Rural Leadership Program Course 25 will take over 30 people from different backgrounds, industries and communities on a challenging 15-month program over five sessions, across Australia and Indonesia.

“Our generous sponsors provide scholarships of $55,000 for leaders from different industries to undertake this life-changing program. This investment then goes beyond the individual leader to their organisation, industry and community through their impact as maturing leaders,” said Matt.

“Scholarships are available for individuals involved in primary industries, agribusiness, the arts, policy and advocacy, health, economic development and the environment.”

The program gives participants the opportunity to develop their understanding of: self and others; ethics, values and social responsibility; and engaging with their industry, community and region.

They will develop their ability to think critically and gain a supportive network of people across different sectors and regions.

“Our goal is to develop people who can lead in their community or industry, and work for the “greater good” of Australia. We have been developing leaders for 25 years and the impact our leaders have made is immense,” said Matt.

The program will run from July 2018 to October 2019. Applications close 30 September 2017.
