Bankwest Foundation Community Leader Scholarship Program:

Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) has partnered with the Bankwest Foundation to assist us in our mission of strengthening the not-for-profit sector through education and training opportunities.

The Bankwest Foundation was established in 2013 with a mission to improve the well-being of Australians by enabling the implementation of significant and meaningful community initiatives in Western Australia and nationally.

Commencing September 2014, the Bankwest Foundation has funded a $1 million Community Leader Scholarship Program for directors and leaders of community organisations in Western Australia. These scholarships, facilitated by Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF), were for education and training programs provided by ASF’s Education Partners. Click here to read the media release.

A special thank you to the Bankwest Foundation and our incredible education partners around Australia for their enormous contribution to the not-for-profit sector, and for working with ASF to award 345 scholarships to NFPs in Western Australia over the last five years!



Social Media Grants

Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grant Scholarships:

The Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grant Scholarships were awarded to charitable not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia to develop their social media strategy for long-term impact. The grants gave 10 NFPs in WA access to $12,974 worth of social media training over a 12 month period, and have the added aim of building awareness, fundraising and a strong volunteer workforce for participating organisations.

The Grant program (otherwise known as 'Gain and Retain') is delivered by Hancock Creative in collaboration with the Bankwest Foundation and Australian Scholarships Foundation to help not-for-profits in an area they need it most. 

Applications for the Social Media Grants have now closed.
