We are pleased to invite applications from your organisation for the 2021 intake of our Fellowship Program – an exclusive national mentoring initiative pairing industry executives (Mentors) and leaders with 10 to 15 years of experience (Fellows).

Nominations are due by COB Friday 28 August 2020 to We also recommend Fellows read the RA Strategic Plan and latest RA Overview prior to applying.

The Scholarship Application (link below) requires applicants to fill the full Fellowship Application, as well as additional information on scholarship eligibility.

The cost for the 2021 program is $6,000 (inc GST) and includes:

  • all associated travel, accommodation and meals for the welcome reception, mid-year workshop and closing event.
  • registration to all Roads Australia Industry Lunches, Emerging Leaders events for the 12 month Fellowship period, plus a range of complimentary Fellows-only events for 2021 and beyond.  

To maintain the integrity and sustainability of the program, the number of Fellowship placements is limited to 30. Please keep in mind that due to the programs high demand, not every company is guaranteed acceptance. This enables us to build a pool of skilled Mentors to pair with the Fellows, while also ensuring the program achieves its objectives of developing our industry’s best and brightest future leaders.

To ensure your Fellowship nominations have the strongest chance of acceptance into the program, we ask for your support in following the application guidelines including self-selection of your top male and female applicants (maximum 2 in total) and provision of all requested information in each submission. We ask that you communicate internally to avoid exceeding our submission limit. Please contact me if you would like to know who else in your company received this email for coordination purposes.

The Program aims to build local and national networks among Fellows and Mentors, as well as promoting Fellows as integral contributors to Roads Australia through Policy Stream involvement and other associated activities. Nominations should clearly demonstrate the applicant’s passion for, and interest in, contributing to growing and improving our industry, building industry leadership capability and ensuring our collective success.  As such, please consider all employees for this opportunity regardless of anticipated company tenure.

Roads Australia looks forward to receiving nominations for the 2021 Fellowship intake.
