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.

Bankwest Foundation

Social Media Grants for NFPs in WA – NOW OPEN!

Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grants

We are delighted to open the next round of Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grants for not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia who are looking to develop their social media strategy for long-term impact.

The purpose of the grants is to better equip Volunteering Involving Organisations (VIOs) to communicate via social media channels with the primary aim of attracting and retaining a strong volunteer workforce. This is a unique opportunity to participate in ongoing social media training, mentorship, development and support throughout 2017.

There are up to 10x $10,000 grants available to WA-based NFPS, which will enable them to participate in a 12 month social media mentoring program delivered by Hancock Creative, an award-winning creative agency who have specifically designed this program - in collaboration with the Bankwest Foundation and ASF - to help not-for-profits in an area they need it most.

Ms Paula Rogers from Bapistcare, a 2015 grant recipient, says, "The mentoring that we have received has provided the courage to dare and to trial different methods of communication …Our ability to market using social media will be part of our future proofing to position our organisation for current and future clients. It has really given us a competitive advantage in a budget constrained NFP world."
