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”.

Tessa and Andrew - Fulbright Blog

Tessa Boyd-Caine and Andrew Tyndale: On Location in the US


In 2013, ASF had the privilege of awarding a Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership to Dr Tessa Boyd-Caine of ACOSS and Mr Andrew Tyndale of Grace Mutual. Tessa and Andrew were the inaugural winners of the prestigious scholarship, which has continued to run in 2014 and 2015.

With their scholarships, Tessa and Andrew have travelled to New York City and Washington DC to research issues around how non-profit organisations can strengthen and lead the trust and confidence in which this sector is held. They aim to identify processes in the US that could be adapted to better support the Australian NFP sector.
