Scholarships for Emerging NFP Leaders

Applications close 13 April

Young Leaders Forum

Round 2 of the Young Leaders Forum Scholarships are now open! We're looking for emerging NFP leaders to join likeminded peers for a learning opportunity of a lifetime at McKinsey Academy's Young Leaders Forum in August 2021.

The Young Leaders Program (YLF) is a foundational leadership program designed to accelerate the development of emerging leaders and provide participants with the necessary skills, ways of thinking, and insights to become a better leader in a world of disruptive change. With a focus on strengths and stretch, YLF develops unique, inspirational, and supportive leaders through the layers of your organisation.

YLF 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.

Applicants Australia-wide are welcome to apply.

2022 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership PDF Print E-mail

2022 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership

Funded by Perpetual & Supported by Australian Scholarships Foundation

Fulbright Australia, Perpetual and ASF are pleased to offer the 2022 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership for the tenth year running. After the superb quality and volume of past year's recipients, we are looking forward to awarding the 2022 scholarship to yet another deserving candidate in the not-for-profit sector.

A Fulbright award is more than a Scholarship – it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering “leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures… It is a modest program with an immodest aim – the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilised, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past.” Since its establishment, the Fulbright Program has grown to become the largest educational exchange program in the world, operating in over 160 countries. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, Fulbright Australia have awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni.

Valued at $30,000, the Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership is the first Fulbright Scholarship for the not-for-profit sector in Australia. It provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an emerging leader in the charitable not-for-profit sector to undertake a program of research and/or professional development in the United States for a period of 3-4 months.

Since its inception in 2013, the non-profit Fulbright has given NFP leaders an opportunity like none other to improve their skills and knowledge, exchange information with peers in Australia and the U.S., as well as join the prestigious alumni of Fulbright Scholars worldwide.

Merry Christmas 2020 PDF Print E-mail

Merry Christmas

This year has no doubt been challenging, but the team at Australian Scholarships Foundation wish you a happy and safe break over Christmas and New Year.

We are taking some time to recharge and ASF will reopen on 4 January 2021.

We'd like to thank all our many supporters - our education partners, our corporate and philanthropic supporters and the many other friends of ASF for their generosity throughout 2020. Together, we delivered $1.5m in programs to NFP staff, executives and boards this year alone.

Without you, ASF would be unable to fund and facilitate the hundreds of scholarships that give the inspiring leaders in Australia's NFP sector the opportunities to access education, training and professional development across the country. 

And most of all, we salute the thousands of NFP leaders who inspire ASF to do more. We have great plans for even more scholarship opportunities in 2021.

Wishing you a joyous and happy break. We will see you in the New Year!
