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.

NPA Leadership Hub

ASF is delighted to launch a brand new partnership with the NonProfit Alliance (NPA).

NPA's mission is to create a sustainable future for the non-profit and social purpose sector and achieve a more socially aware Australia. They believe that to do this, social purpose organisations need to invest in the capabilities of their leaders, and those who will be leading their organisations into the future. ASF is thrilled to partner with NPA in this mission which so closely aligns with our own.

Together, we're offering CEOs and senior executives of not-for-profit organisations the chance to partake in NPA's immersive Leadership Hub program in 2018. There are three $8,800 scholarships available which will give the recipients 12 months' access to the NPA Leadership Hub, a vibrant, supportive, learning and mentoring network focused on developing the skills and expertise of senior leadership team members of Australia’s NFP organisations.

The Leadership Hub is not a stand-alone course, but a sustained and long-term peer to peer leadership program, that will support you each day with your leadership challenges and opportunities.

If you hold a CEO or senior executive position with a charitable not-for-profit organisation this opportunity is for you!

Australian NFP Workforce Study

Australian NFP Workforce Study

ASF is proud to support the Australian Not-for-Profit Workforce Study, the largest ever research study on and for NFP organisations, and all their employees and volunteers.

Created by the Centre for Social Impact at UWA, the Workforce Study is designed to identify what matters most for making not-for-profit work more developmental, healthy, meaningful, and productive. Everyone in Australia benefits from the great work of our not-for-profit organisations and their people - you.

Paul Murnane, Executive Chair of ASF, says “NFP organisations spend more than half of their expenses on staff, meaning employees and volunteers are simply irreplaceable. Investing in the sector’s people is the single biggest opportunity for greater impact."

Whilst the world is changing and demanding more, the solution isn't to work harder. Instead, so you can continue to adapt and innovate, CSI have used applied science to find ways of working smarter and healthier, for more positive change, and an even better Australia.

We're inviting you and others in your organisation to participate in this important national research. The more people who respond, the more representative and useful the results for growing people, organisations, and their impact.

All findings will be shared, and there are multiple benefits to you and your organisation. By completing the survey, you'll receive FREE analytics on how your role and organisation compare to others in your sector. You'll be able to:
