The Australian Scholarships Foundation – ASF - is the only Australian organisation solely focused on funding and facilitating scholarships for Australian not for profit (NFP) directors and staff to undertake education, training  and mentoring programs that improve their ability to lead and manage their organisations.

ASF is the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Fund of AusSchol Incorporated, an Australian registered charity, ABN 83 420 919 581.

ASF works with a number of Education Partners and Supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs. These include post graduate university diploma, certificate and degree courses, short management and other training programs and specialized mentoring services. Disciplines covered include leadership, finance, accounting and risk management, board governance, strategic planning, project management, marketing and social networking. 

ASF does not provide any education and training programs in its own right, although it commissions education providers and private companies to deliver specific programs that meet NFP needs.

Full details, application forms and terms and conditions of current scholarships can be viewed at Current Scholarships Available in “Scholarships” & “FAQs”.

ASF is a proud member of Philanthropy Australia.
