Two new scholarships which will allow the recipients to complete a Graduate Certificate in Social Impact at the UNSW Centre for Social Impact have been awarded by Clayton Utz.
Rosemary Cottrell and Janina Jancu were the inaugural recipients of the $5000 Clayton Utz Scholarships in Social Impact which aim to assist social managers and entrepreneurs of the future, in the not-for-profit, government or corporate sectors, improve their professional capacity.
Clayton Utz managing partner David Fagan said the opportunity to meet this year's recipients at a morning tea held in their honour reaffirmed the firm's decision to support the centre.
"I was incredibly impressed by Janina and Rosemary's passion for delivering social change. The Graduate
Certificate in Social Impact will allow them to further their critical analysis skills to assist in driving social impact initiatives," he said.
The Centre for Social Impact was developed in partnership by the business schools of the University of New South Wales, the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Western Australia.
The centre's mission is to affect beneficial social impact in Australia through teaching, research and the promotion of public discussion.
