At AIM WA+UWA Business School Executive Education we believe in giving back to the community. Across our portfolio we offer a range of scholarships and initiatives to support the West Australian community, including sponsored placements on courses.
AIM WA and The UWA Business Schools also offer separate Scholarships.
AIM WA’s mission is to improve the performance of Managers, Leaders and Organisations, and one way it does so is by supporting the broader WA community through the provision of a number of Management Development Scholarships every year. AIM WA continues to provide this support in recognition of the challenges for the not-for-profit sector, which works extremely hard to raise capital to achieve its fundamental goals, but sometimes cannot afford funds for staff and business development.
Scholarships are awarded in two main categories:
The Organisational Scholarships invite eligible organisations to apply -- and are open to a broad range of applicants, from civic and voluntary, charitable and welfare groups to churches, sports clubs and other NFP organisations.
The Individual Scholarship Award invites applications from both Young Professionals and Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders. The Individual Scholarships Award will include a significant package of training and development. Individuals from Not-for-Profit industries are also encouraged to apply.
Furthermore, initiatives in support of community and charity group events are prominent in the organisations calendar.
AIM WA uses environmental solutions on its premises as part of its ongoing efforts to become an example of environmental awareness. All AIM WA and Executive Education publications are printed on paper stock which is chlorine free and manufactured from pulp sourced from sustainable, plantation grown timber. Both paper manufacturer and printer are certified to ISO 14001, the internationally recognised standard for environmental management.
