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 a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and Australian charity registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ABN 83 420 919 581).

ASF works with a number of universities, education providers and supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs. These include postgraduate university diplomas, certificate and degree courses, short management and other training programs and specialised 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 works with 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 Open Scholarships and Frequently Asked Questions.

Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders

Perpetual, the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) are pleased to make 17 scholarships available for Indigenous leaders to attend the AICD's Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders in Perth in June 2021.

These scholarships are focused exclusively on supporting Indigenous communities and will be funded by the Fred P Archer Charitable Trust (managed by Perpetual) and the AICD, administered by the ASF and delivered by the AICD.

ASF’s CEO, Sam Sayers, says, “We are delighted to be able to support indigenous leaders to access governance education...These scholarships provide opportunities that may otherwise be difficult for Indigenous communities to access, and we see first-hand the benefits that governance training brings to recipients and their organisations.”

Together, ASF, AICD and Perpetual are offering a combination of full and partial scholarships (valued at up to $7,600 each) to enable Indigenous leaders Australia-wide to develop their skills by exploring the director’s role and responsibilities. Throughout the program, leaders will build upon their governance capabilities and affect positive and long-lasting impact for their organisations.

Applications are now open to new or experienced directors, public officials and senior executives reporting to a board who need to understand governance issues in depth.

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.
