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.

CPA Program

Upgrade your financial knowledge and strategic thinking in 2017!

ASF and CPA Australia are delighted to offer up to five 100% scholarships to staff of not-for-profit organisations to attend the CPA Program in 2017. The program is designed to enable managers and financial officers of registered charitable organisations to enhance their knowledge and skills to further contribute to the management and accountability of their organisations.

Rather than simply providing you with a technical accounting focus, the CPA Program equips you with an understanding of the dynamic issues facing organisations in a global marketplace. The combination of world class study materials in accounting knowledge and strategic thinking, a rigorous assessment process and a practical experience requirement, offers a valuable opportunity to improve the financial and accounting services of your NFP organisation and strengthen your own qualifications.
