I was about to send this opportunity to someone, and then just kept thinking of more and more people to send it to who are doing awesome food stuff, and realised it'd be easier to just post it here instead
@ChrisE from CERES Fair Food is a current social change fellow, so they clearly recognise the value of work such as his - which is a good sign!
The Westpac Social Change Fellowship supports the development of people from any sector with the drive to create better lives for all Australians. 10 Fellowships of up to $50,000 will be awarded to individuals who have the vision and commitment to deliver an initiative that will improve the wellbeing of Australians.
The Fellowship is designed to give recipients time and space to develop the skills, knowledge and networks needed to accelerate their growth as a social innovator. This may involve travel study tours, work experience, research or building stronger connections that will directly enhance their ability to lead positive social change.
Successful recipients will also become valued members of the Westpac 100 Scholars Network.
If your application is successful you will receive up to $50,000. This funding will help you embark on your own bespoke development journey, over a maximum six month period.
The Fellowship could cover:
* Travel and accommodation costs (overseas and/or domestic)
* Expenses relating to the experience
* Reasonable personal expenses
* Costs for relief in current employment (depending on need)
