International Young Governance Professionals Scholarship Fund
Congratulations to our IYGP Scholarship Fund recipients!
The International Young Governance Professionals and the International Policy Governance Association are excited to announce that Missy Chareka, Calgary, Alberta and Matthew Schroeder, Toronto, Ontario are the first recipients of the IYGP Scholarship. The scholarships will allow these two deserving individuals to attend the IYGP Summit 2016 this coming June.
In June 2016, IYGP and IPGA announced the formation of the IYGP Scholarship Fund - created to support young professionals interested in effective governance principles and education.
Through generous donations from both IPGA and IYGP members, as well as support from our review panel, we were able to offer two scholarships this year.
Missy Chareka from Calgary will use her board experience and lessons learned from the upcoming IYGP Summit to serve the not-for-profit sector, contributing to the advancement of women and minorities, lending her voice to the homeless community and benefiting the Calgary airport authority.
Matthew Schroeder from Toronto works in the social sector and his participation as a board member has allowed him to help bring higher education to impoverished communities. He is looking forward to using the collaborative opportunities at the IYGP Summit to facilitate local and global change.
A special thanks goes out to Catherine Raso, Fiona Burgess and Lindsay Falt for serving on the IYGP Scholarship Fund review panel.
If you believe that having highly functioning boards is key to creating the future you want to see, you have come to the right place. IPGA is a non-profit community of practitioners, researchers and consultants acting for public benefit - promoting and developing the advanced governance systems the world so sorely needs.
