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.

AICD Governance Scholarships 2018/19

140 AICD Governance Scholarships for NFPs Australia-wide

Applications close 13th June

AICD Scholarships

In partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), ASF are pleased to announce the launch of 140 governance education scholarships for not-for-profits across Australia in 2018/19!

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 up to 20 leaders of small NFP organisations in each state and territory to develop their skills and capabilities to be the leaders of the future.

The training on offer includes a selection of AICD's short courses designed to support both boards and the executives who report to them, as well as those who aspire to join a NFP board in the near future.

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

McKinsey Academy - Young Leaders Forum Scholarships

Young Leaders Forum Scholarships

Applications close 25th April

Young Leaders Forum

We are delighted to be partnering with McKinsey & Company to provide 10 scholarships for not-for-profit sector employees to attend McKinsey Academy’s Young Leaders Forum in June 2018. Scholarship recipients will join a cohort of 100 other young leaders to take part in this global leadership development program run by the McKinsey Academy.

The Young Leaders Program is designed to benefit emerging high potential future leaders, who typically have between 7 and 12 years of work experience, and are making the transition into people leadership roles, as well as taking on more responsibility for driving the strategy and execution of their organisations. CEOs of small NFPs, social enterprises or start-ups may also find the course beneficial, as they start to build their organisations and manage people.

The Young Leaders Program consists of a two-day workshop in Sydney while the rest of the program is completed remotely over six weeks in June and July. Each scholarship is valued at $4,000 and covers 100% of the program fees.

Applicants Australia-wide are welcome to apply.
