Congratulations to Kady Agius, the first awardee of the Linda Ray Scholarship, valued at nearly $10,000. Kady is a Sector Development worker for the North Queensland Domestic Violence Resource Service, an NGO supporting those who have experienced domestic and family violence.
The key criteria in the scholarship judging were “impact” and Kady is certainly in a position to translate what she will learn in the course to positive impacts on her community.
“Because I’m working for an NGO, the Advanced Diploma of Neuroscience of Leadership course is not something I would normally have the opportunity to undertake without a scholarship,” she said.
“This opportunity will change my life in my ability to network, collaborate and provide quality training and services to the organisations I work with and support. Perhaps more significantly, this opportunity would have wide-reaching, trickle-down implications to NGO’s and service users in numerous rural/remote communities in the north.”
With each course intake (four times a year), NeuroCapability awards a Linda Ray Scholarship to an incoming student. This scholarship covers partial or full course fees and is designed to open the course and its many benefits to people who might not otherwise be able to enrol.
NeuroCapability founder and CEO, Linda Ray, is on a mission to change the world – one brain at a time – because she believes understanding how the brain works make us all more effective, more productive, and happier. It is this desire to make a difference on a large scale that inspired the creation of the Linda Ray Scholarship.
In the March 2020 intake, the inaugural Linda Ray Scholarship was awarded to a student in Tasmania who is in a position to leverage her new skill set across a wide range of people. If you know someone who could change the world using skills learned in the Neuroscience of Leadership course, contact Linda direct or get in touch with the NeuroCapability team.
