Standards for Excellence Scholarships

The Ethics Center’s popular training for nonprofits and foundations, Standards for Excellence®, is accepting scholarship applications for organizations to attend our upcoming training on March 14 and 15 and to become a member of our Partner in Learning community. Thanks to generous support from the Packard and Sobrato Foundations, we are able to offer this transformative training at little cost to eligible organizations. To find out if your organization is eligible, please see our scholarship requirements.

Standards for Excellence is a nationally-known ethics and accountability program for the social sector, and the Center is California’s first and only replication partner. The national program provides a code, training, and in-depth resource materials, and the Center has customized these tools to better emphasize the ethical issues in all areas of work in the social sector. The Center offers this training to organizations in the 14 Bay Area Counties along with anyone interested in our ethics-specific training, and SCU alumni.

Our two-day training sessions cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Mission, strategy, and evaluation
  • Leadership: Board, staff, and volunteers
  • Finance, legal, and operations
  • Resource development
  • Public awareness, engagement, and advocacy

 Scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis but availability is limited, so apply now!
