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.

ASF Congratulates 290 NFP Directors and Chairmen

Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) and its partners – Perpetual and the Australian Institute of Company Directors – are proud to congratulate 290 directors and chairs of NFP organisations who are now recipients of a 100% scholarship to attend the Governance for Not-for-Profit Directors course or The Not-for-Profit Chairman course, run by the AICD in early 2014.

The courses, generously funded by Perpetual (in partnership with the JS Love Trust), will give scholarship recipients an opportunity to upskill and increase their capabilities in directorship and governance, with a focus on financial and performance issues relating to NFP organisations.

This year, ASF received over 1,000 applications, making scholarship places especially competitive. 

ASF's CEO Amy Lyden says, “Director development training continues to be a priority for many not-for-profit organisations. This particular scholarship program is in its third year and ASF is thrilled that as a result of Perpetual’s help we have been able to put 1,100 NFP Directors through these courses.

ASF, the AICD and Perpetual would like to thank all applicants for taking the time apply, and commend their continued commitment and dedication to the NFP sector.

Congratulations to all ASF-AICD scholarship recipients!
