ASF CEO Resigns PDF Print E-mail

ASF CEO Resigns

Amy Lyden

The Board of Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) announced that Amy Lyden has resigned as Chief Executive Officer.

In making the announcement ASF Chairman Paul A. Murnane acknowledged the outstanding contribution Amy has made to the development of ASF in Australia.

“Amy was appointed inaugural Chief Executive in 2009. During her six years with ASF she built a strong innovative organisation, which awarded nearly $5m of scholarships. She leaves ASF well positioned to continue playing an influential role in the professionalisation and effectiveness of the not-for-profit sector nationwide.”

Amy will be taking up the role of Scholarship Program Director for the Westpac Bicentennial Foundation in late May.

Amy said her decision to leave was difficult. “I've been very fortunate to work with inspiring not-for-profit leaders, committed education providers, generous financial supporters and supportive colleagues in the ASF organisation. Deciding the right time to depart was never going to be easy but after over six years with ASF I believe now is the right time to move on to the next stage of my career.

"I am very proud of the achievements of ASF. From startup, ASF has processed over 5,000 scholarship applications to award over 2,300 scholarships, including the world-first Fulbright Professional Scholarships in Non Profit Leadership. Over 2,000 Australian charities and NFPs have been supported.

“These scholarships have been in partnership with 26 education partners, including 16 universities nationwide. We have multiplied each donated cash dollar into an average $5 of scholarships value.”

ASF’s scholarships program continues apace, with over $800,000 of new scholarships awarded in March alone. The Board will announce the appointment of a new CEO in due course.
