Developing leaders for a better society
At the Australian Scholarships Foundation, we believe that when you develop the capabilities of leaders you also build the capacity of the sector. Investing in leadership and high-potential staff enables organisations to deliver on their mission.
The foundation’s role is to facilitate and enable professional development opportunities and thought leadership in ways that increase the effectiveness of not for-profit organisations.
We work with trusted, credible education partners to offer scholarships to executives, leaders, board directors and high-potential staff in the not for-profit sector.
Our scholarships are available for short courses, training and development programs, certificate and degree courses, postgraduate diplomas, governance training and mentoring services. Disciplines covered include leadership, finance, accounting and risk management, strategic planning, project management, marketing and board governance.
We want to build individual capabilities to grow organisational ability, retain skilled staff and attract new talent.
We also support and facilitate independent quantitative research that establishes a significant evidence base and understanding of the key development needs of the not-for-profit sector.
We are supportive change-makers fostering leadership capabilities to strengthen the community’s collective performance.
