"The Anstice MBA Scholarship" supports MBA students from the not-for-profit sector

16 Nov 2012

The University of Sydney Business School has announced the Anstice MBA Scholarship for Community Leadership, which offers support for emerging leaders from the not-for-profit sector undertaking the new Sydney MBA.

The scholarship has been made possible by the generous donation from prominent Business School alumnus David Anstice (BEc '70), and will provide $30,000 over three years to one eligible MBA student per year.

"Leadership is just as important in the not for profit sector as in every other part of our community. Leadership must never be undervalued. I believe that it is vital that we encourage these up-and-coming leaders to develop their skills, and ensure that the society critical work of the not-for-profit sector can continue to deliver benefits to those who are most in need."

David Anstice has a strong connection to the University, and the Business School. In 2007, he was awarded an honorary Fellowship of the University, and is currently serving as an Adjunct Professor at the Business School. In 2011, David was awarded the Alumni Award for International Achievement, for his outstanding contributions through philanthropy and an untiring commitment to the promotion of the University, in Australia and overseas.

"David Anstice is a wonderful friend of the Business School and the University," said Professor Geoffrey Garrett, Dean of the Business School. "We share his twin passions for developing leaders and promoting innovation in Australia. This gift will contribute materially to both goals."

The scholarship is open to local students who successfully gain entry into the MBA program, and who will maintain a continuous enrolment for the degree duration.

Valued at $30,000, the scholarship will be paid in three annual instalments of $10,000, pending academic progression. Preference will be given to those applicants working in the not-for-profit sector, especially charity workers.
