THE FOUNDATION

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.

Origin Foundation Recognised as 2014 B/HERT Award Winner

The Origin Foundation, one of ASF’s partners, has recently been recognised for its philanthropic support of higher education in Australia. The foundation was presented with the 2014 ‘Outstanding Philanthropic Support for Higher Education’ award by the Business / Higher Education Round Table (B/HERT).

The award recognises the Origin Foundation’s support of and funding towards the scaling of the Exceptional Teachers for Disadvantaged Schools program implemented by the Queensland University of Technology. Developed in 2009, the program addresses the significant social issue of educational disadvantage through a teacher education program that focuses on the preparation of high-quality teacher graduates. With the support of the Origin Foundation, the program now operates on a national scale, with the University of Newcastle and the University of New England also joining in the cause.

This prestigious award is one of many handed out by the Business / Higher Education Round Table each year, highlighting the work of many incredible education providers and organisations. Previous winners of the ‘Outstanding Philanthropic Support for Higher Education’ award have included the Graham and Louise Tuckwell Foundation for their $50 million gift to the Australian National University.
