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.

Board Builder

There’s nothing quite like standing shoulder to shoulder and working for a cause. But if your board’s not working well the whole thing can start to feel too hard, too painful. Sometimes just a small tweak can create enormous change. But how do you know where to focus?

On Monday 6th March, the Institute of Community Directors Australia and are running the annual Board Builder Conference in Melbourne, a one-day community governance conference created BY the people, FOR the people. At Board Builder 2017 you’ll hear solutions to some of the problems that plague not-for-profit boards, and learn how to clear a path to greater impact.

Conference attendees will be able to:

  • Join a community of not-for-profit board members striving for excellence
  • Let international data social scientist Andrew Means open new vistas for evaluation and analysis that make sense and are achievable now
  • Hear real-life case studies of how people turned a board around by recruiting fresh blood
  • Find out how to keep your eye on the prize in times of challenging change
  • Board behaviour is absolutely central to the success or failure of a board
  • Find out how to develop a plan for moving past the blockers and into the future
  • Go away with practical, instantly implementable tips on a range of governance-related topics

ICDA are inviting interested NFPs to register now to secure their place.

The Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors course, run by the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), provides participants with an understanding of fundamental compliance and performance related roles and responsibilities of directors, specifically in the areas of governance, risk, financial performance and strategy.

ASF, the AICD and the Bankwest Foundation are offering multiple 100% scholarships to current NFP directors, executives and those preparing themselves for this role. Valued at $950, the program will be held in Perth on Monday 11th and 12th April 2017.

A past scholarship recipient says, "the course was fantastic. It put a real emphasis on my responsibilities and liability as a director. It [also] made me stronger in my confidence and understanding of my role as director, which is an invaluable asset to both myself and to the boards I sit on".

If you live in WA and work for a charitable not-for-profit organisation in Western Australia we’d love to hear from you! Click here to find out more and to apply for a scholarship.
