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.

Give for Good New Leaders Scholarships 2019


For emerging not-for-profit leaders Australia-wide


Give for Good New Leaders Scholarships

ASF, Give for Good and Melbourne Business School are inviting emerging not-for-profit leaders to apply for a brand new scholarship opportunity to attend the New Leaders Development Program at MBS in September. There are 12 full scholarships and a select number of Rural Travel Grants available as part of the inaugural Give for Good New Leaders Scholarships, created to develop, foster and build the capacity of local not-for-profit leaders.

The New Leaders Development Program is specifically designed for managers who are leading teams, transitioning into a leadership role, or have had little leadership development.

Scholarship recipients will become more effective leaders by learning how to better support their teams through increased impact in areas such as conflict management, performance-building and goal-setting. They will gain the insights and tools needed to build personal, team and organisational effectiveness and learn to delegate effectively, manage conflict, lead with confidence, set realistic goals and coach others.

The scholarships will be offered to individuals employed by an Australian charity or not-for-profit organisation, with preference given to organisations that support education & youth initiatives, disaster relief, and/or rural communities.

AICD NFP Governance Scholarships 2019

140 AICD Governance Scholarships for NFPs Australia-wide

Applications close 20 June

AICD Scholarships

In partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), ASF are pleased to announce 140 governance education scholarships for not-for-profits across Australia in 2019/20!

In the face of increasing complexity and demand on not-for-profits, good governance has never been more important for the not-for-profit sector. The AICD scholarship program will enable leaders of small NFP organisations in each state and territory to develop their skills and capabilities to be the leaders of the future.

The scholarships will allow board directors, the executives who report to them, and those who aspire to join a NFP board in the near future to attend the AICD's highly regarded Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors course.

Each scholarship covers 100% of the associated course fees and will be offered to non-executive directors and senior executives of NFP organisations who would otherwise be unable to attend governance education programs due to the financial constraints of the organisation.
