“To be the first lawyer to be awarded the NMF was a tremendous shock, but also such a golden opportunity. The application process was deeply reflective for me; I actually changed my professional development proposal as a result of drafting the document because I had never really taken the time for introspection… With NMF support, I was selected to participate in the 2019 Asialink Business Leaders Program – a unique opportunity usually reserved for outstanding, upper-level managers from corporate Australia – which has inspired me to approach cross-cultural work through a more commercial, entrepreneurial and innovative lens.” – Miriam Katsambis, 2018 Fellowship recipient
Applications close midnight Friday 23 August. Find Fellowship Guidelines here and apply online.
