Betty Amsden Awards & Scholarships support the personal and professional development of future leaders in the Australian community, specifically in the not-for-profit sector.

The Awards & Scholarships are designed to inspire our future leaders, helping them strengthen their existing skills and develop new ones; enabling each to reach new career and personal heights, and become role models for others in the community.

The Betty Amsden Awards for Leaders in the Arts are designed to encourage the development of
strong young leaders in arts-based NFPs or in NFPs utilising the arts to achieve social outcomes.

Applications for the 2022 Betty Amsden Awards for Leaders in the Arts are now closed.


At present Betty Amsden Scholarship applications are by invitation only. No unsolicited scholarship requests will be accepted.
