We want to help you attend the 2020 Govern for Impact conference..

The Govern YP scholarship fund is designed to support young professionals interested in effective boardroom governance either in the corporate or non-profit sector. It will be administered by Govern for Impact (formerly the International Policy Governance Association) and is designed to encourage participation by young professionals around the world. This year, due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Govern for Impact conference will be virtual.

Attending our virtual conference gives the chance for young people to learn about best governance practices from established leaders in the industry and to create individual and collective momentum through sharing their insights and ambitions.

Successful applicants will be notified of their award on or before June 3, 2020.

Here’s what two previous scholarship recipients said about their experiences:

It was a truly eye-opening experience – and I met many phenomenal people from all around the world. Our generation is faced with so many challenges and attending this conference enabled me to learn how I, as a young governance professional, can facilitate positive change in the organizations I support. – Missy Chareka

Attending the conference as a scholar and member of IYGP was an incredible experience that broadened my perspective in many ways. It equipped me with useful tools to effectively  encourage young participation on boards, and inter-generational knowledge exchange. I was able to widen my network, and learnt loads from talented people who were willing to share their knowledge. – Amanda Moreira
