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 a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and Australian charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ABN 83 420 919 581).

ASF works with a number of universities, education providers and supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs. These include postgraduate university diplomas, certificate and degree courses, short management and other training programs and specialised 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 works with 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 Open Scholarships and Frequently Asked Questions.

ASF is a proud member of Philanthropy Australia.

Fulbrighters become leaders in their fields


New research into the impact of the Fulbright Scholarships for not-for-profit leaders in Australia reveals returned scholars do remarkable things. 

Adam Davids, a proud Indigenous man, has just returned from a Fulbright Scholarship in the USA brimming with ideas on how to improve outcomes for Indigenous young people. 

Adam is director of learning at CareerTrackers, which is successfully tackling the 60 per cent drop-out rate for Indigenous university students.

“I have benefitted personally and professionally from the experience,” Adam says.

“I’ve been gifted insights into more than 100 years of impact driven by not for profits for minority people in the USA that have strong parallels to more recently established programs that serve Indigenous Australians.”

“I was welcomed by exceptional leaders within the Native American and African American community who reinforced my understanding of the key long-term investments needed to empower racial minority young people.”

Adam is one of 10 scholars who are unique in the international Fulbright alumni. They were recipients of the only Fulbright Scholarship in the world specifically for leaders of NGOs and not for profits.

The scholarships were a joint initiative of the Australian Scholarships Foundation, Origin Energy Foundation, and the Fulbright Commission in Australia.
