About the foundation
In late 2018, the Board of Directors of the Australian Institute of Credit Management (AICM) proudly approved the establishment of the AICM Education Foundation.
The AICM Education Foundation has been established to provide financial assistance to credit professionals and students striving to continue their education. Funds are gathered from generous donations from the AICM and Credit Community, as well as fundraising activities and events of the AICM and it’s supporters throughout the year including but not limited to the annual AICM Conference.
The Education Foundation will also bolster the vision of the AICM to be the primary learning, knowledge and information source for credit professionals and support the AICM’s objective of providing opportunities for growth throughout their careers.
For more information on the foundation, make contributions or interest in supporting the Management Committee contact the AICM National office (email@example.com 1300 560 996).
Scholarships are not limited to AICM members and will be targeted at ensuring those unable to obtain corporate financial support are able to progress their career in credit management.
Applicant eligibility is at the sole discretion of the AICM Education Foundation Committee.
Applications must be received and approved prior to the commencement of the nominated course. Scholarships are not transferable to another course or participant and will expire at the scheduled completion of the approved course.
Education scholarships available
The committee is currently focusing on establishing a scholarship fund and are in the initial stages of establishing scholarships.
Scholarships initially will be targeted towards AICM qualifications, Toolbox and workshop educational activities.
Further activities may including supporting research, assisting unemployed credit professionals, assisting aspiring credit professionals enter the profession and other activities that support individuals or promote the profession.
