Grass Roots Governance Workshop Series Scholarship Application

Grass Roots Scholarship Opportunity

We are thrilled to announce a unique scholarship opportunity for leaders of grassroots community organizations to attend the “Board Leadership Academy: Foundations for Emerging Board Members” workshop series. This initiative, sponsored by the Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, is designed to empower and elevate the governance skills of those at the forefront of community change. Recognizing the pivotal role that effective leadership plays in amplifying the impact of grassroots organizations, this scholarship aims to provide invaluable learning opportunities for those who are making a difference at the community level but may lack the resources to participate in professional development programs.

The scholarship covers full attendance to the series for five grassroots community leaders, encompassing workshops on nonprofit governance, advocacy, and strategic planning. It is an ideal opportunity for emerging leaders eager to enhance their capabilities in leading their organizations toward tremendous success and sustainability. By attending, participants will not only gain critical insights and tools for effective board membership and leadership but also have the chance to network with peers and seasoned professionals in the field. If you’re a leader or an aspiring leader within a grassroots community organization, we encourage you to apply for this scholarship and take a significant step toward strengthening your leadership journey and maximizing your organization’s impact on the community it serves.

The Wisconsin Nonprofit Summit Scholarship Application will be available on July 1, 2024.
