Developing for-purpose leaders for a better society
The Australian Leadership Hub is the new, enhanced identity of the Australian Scholarships Foundation, a registered charity dedicated to nurturing the leaders of charities, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations that are committed to fostering positive societal change.
What we do
We provide scholarships, leadership awards, education programs and events for board directors, leaders and emerging leaders, including those from disadvantaged communities.
We are Australia’s largest provider of scholarships and professional development opportunities in the for-purpose sector, connecting educators, executives, funders and alumni, who partner with us to develop leaders’ skills.
Our surveys have told us that 90% of recipients would not have been able to access training without a scholarship, and we know that demand is strong, with four applicants for every opportunity available.
The Australian Leadership Hub is the new, expanded presence of Australian Scholarships Limited, a registered charity that has been working for more than 14 years to develop the capacity of leaders in the for-purpose sector.
More than 5,000 people from a wide range of organisations have already benefited from free and subsidised leadership training opportunities worth $17.2 million.
Our mission now is to expand our programs and amplify our impact. Our collective partnerships and market presence will result in the delivery of even more training and career development opportunities at scale.
Why we do it
Australia’s not-for-profit sector accounts for almost a tenth of the economy, more than a tenth of employees and millions of volunteers. They operate at the coalface of service delivery, dealing with climate emergencies, homelessness and mental health crises.
More than ever, these leaders need to be equipped to navigate complexity and uncertainty, respond to workforce and resourcing challenges, and meet rising demand – all while delivering quality services to communities.
At the Australian Leadership Hub, we address this by building a community of leaders, education providers, funders and supporters who prioritise the development of leaders’ capabilities.
By offering quality education and peer-to-peer learning environments, and celebrating best-practice leadership, we will create a stronger, more effective sector that is better equipped to address key societal challenges.
You can also learn more about how to create a lasting legacy by establishing your own scholarship to support education opportunities, bursaries or prizes.
