Snow Entrepreneurs – fellowships for social change

We are delighted to announce the launch of Snow Entrepreneurs – fellowships for social change, in celebration of the Foundation’s 30-year anniversary. These inaugural Fellowships honour our own entrepreneurial beginnings and those of our founder Terry Snow AM. They reflect our strong commitment to backing inspiring leaders and teams with innovative ideas to address social problems.

We are looking for entrepreneurial social change leaders who are tackling problems in new ways:

Initiatives need to be early stage, address one of our focus areas and benefit people in our key regions: Canberra and surrounds, NSW South Coast, rural and regional NSW and/or Sydney.

‘Snow Entrepreneurs’ will receive in the first year:

  • Grant funding of up to $100k
  • Professional wrap-around support program – a mentor, diagnostic session to identify strengths and weaknesses and tailored expert advisory services. This will be coordinated by our partners at the Social Impact Hub.

Our intention is to build long-term, trusting partnerships to help bold ideas become reality.

How to apply:

Visit the Fellowship page and review the criteria and application guidelines.

The first step is to submit grant enquiry by 8 November (with full applications due 15 November).

We are so excited to hear about the innovative and impactful initiatives from enterprising leaders, and to assist them on their path to success. And be sure to pass this on to any bold, budding social entrepreneurs you know!

Grant enquiries are due 8 November, and applications (by invitation only) are due 15 November
