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 will fund 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), will be for education and training programs provided by ASF’s Education Partners. Click here to read the media release.

Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grant Scholarships:
The Bankwest Foundation has also launched the Bankwest Foundation Social Media Grant Scholarships, which are awarded to charitable not-for-profit organisations in Western Australia to develop their social media strategy for long-term impact. The Grant program, run by Hancock Creative, gives 10 NFPs in WA access to $10,000 worth of social media training over a 12 month period, and has an added aim of attracting and retaining a strong volunteer workforce.

Applications for the 2018 Social Media Grant program will be opening on 11th October 2017. Stay tuned for updates!
