Myer Innovation Fellowships 2019 - closes Sunday 30th September
Over the past five years the Myer Innovation Fellowship program has unearthed 15 amazing individuals who have used the Fellowship to help realise their big idea.
Now, they're looking for the 2019 Fellows:
The program seeks exceptional leaders across all sectors (private, public and non-profit) and from all types of professional backgrounds. For us, the idea is king. We will consider both the quality of the break-through idea and the capacity of the applicant to implement this idea.
In 2019 three Fellows will each receive $120,000 along with select administrative and operational support for their 12 months commitment to the program.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step outside the routine and rhythm of everyday life and chase down an answer to the great tests we face as a nation.

I did the program in 2010 and highly recommend it. The application process can take some time, and close on 30 September, so get to it if you are keen for an amazing, transformative 2019!

Women in Renewables
The Clean Energy Council's Women in Renewables initiative champions women in renewable energy while striving to achieve a better gender balance across all levels of the industry. Through building a united community of men and women who share a collective mission and vision, we will in turn enable women to step up as empowered leaders within their organisations.
