ANZSOG/NSW ICAC executive short course scholarship 2019

The ICAC is offering 15 scholarships (valued at $4,995 each) to eligible NSW public officials to attend the Strategic Responses to Corruption executive short course in Sydney from 3 to 6 September 2019. Applications must be lodged with the ICAC no later than 5 pm (AEST) on Friday, 5 July 2019.

The course is also open to fee-paying applicants from any jurisdiction. To register directly, go to the ANZSOG website.

Who is eligible to apply?

Only public officials employed by NSW public authorities are eligible to apply for a scholarship.

The scholarships are competitively awarded to executive or senior NSW public officials whose roles have operational responsibility for work areas that have significant, inherent corruption risk attached. Scholarship recipients must have the authority to direct organisational reform in these work areas. While those in governance or audit roles would benefit from the course, they are not the target for the scholarship.

Application and selection process

Eligible candidates must submit:

  • an up-to-date curriculum vitae (maximum four pages)

  • a completed application form that includes concise responses to the selection criteria

  • the endorsement of the CEO, cluster secretary, general manager or an executive in an equivalent role.


All applications require the endorsement of the CEO or cluster secretary for state agencies, or the general manager for local government. An executive in an equivalent role may also be sufficient with the ICAC’s confirmation. Endorsement needs to indicate not only support for attendance, but also support for putting into practice relevant reform.

Inclusions and exclusions

The scholarship covers only the non-residential fee of $4,995 (including GST). This covers tuition, and refreshments and lunch each day of the four-day course. All other expenses (for example, salary, travel, per diems and accommodation) remain the responsibility of the scholarship recipient’s employer. The endorsement also indicates the employer’s support for meeting these costs.
