CASE Graduate Trainee Programme - Asia-Pacific
By virtue of funds donated worldwide, millions of underprivileged youths are provided access to tertiary education and groundbreaking research work is initiated in a diverse range of areas. The impact of philanthropy involves creating public value and helping to advance society - this is the power of fundraising.
The CASE Graduate Trainee Programme (GTP) - Asia-Pacific is an exciting way to launch your career in fundraising and provides you with an opportunity to advance education to transform lives and society. This prestigious fully-paid programme will begin in March 2021 and will be available in two options; 6 months and 12 months.
We invite highly motivated graduates and early/mid-career professionals to enter the exciting world of advancement.
What does the traineeship include?
Trainees will be employed by a host university. They will begin the programme at the host institution and work in various areas of a university's development office - gaining experience and developing skills in alumni relations, prospect management, annual and regular giving, stewardship, fundraising campaigns, major gifts, events and partnerships. The breadth of the experience provides trainees with a fully rounded view of fundraising in higher education and the role it plays in supporting the university, current students and potential students. A mentor and career coach will be provided to the group of trainees along with networking opportunities and online resources such as the CASE Community.
As part of their professional development, trainees will participate in an induction programme as well as attend the CASE Asia-Pacific Institute in Educational Fundraising and the CASE Asia-Pacific Advancement Conference.
For the 12-month programme, trainees will spend one month at another co-host institution as part of their secondment. This month-long secondment will enhance the learning process through opportunities given to apply learning at another institution with an emerging development function.
Participating Host Institution for GTP 2021:
