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 the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Fund of AusSchol Incorporated, an Australian registered charity, ABN 83 420 919 581.

ASF works with a number of Education Partners and Supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs. These include post graduate university diploma, certificate and degree courses, short management and other training programs and specialized 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 commissions 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 Current Scholarships Available in “Scholarships” & “FAQs”.

ASF is a proud member of Philanthropy Australia.

Congratulations to our 2019 Fulbright Scholarship Recipient

On 28 February, the Australian-American Fulbright Commission officially announced the recipients of its 2019 Australian-American Scholarships at Parliament House in Canberra, and simultaneously celebrated the 70th anniversary of the scholarships and the largest cohort of recipients in that time.

Among this year's awardees was Mr Adam Davids of CareerTrackers, who was recognised as the 2019 recipient of the Fulbright Professional Scholarship in NonProfit Leadership, sponsored by Perpetual and supported by the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF). Adam is a proud Aboriginal Australian and descendant of the Wiradjuri people in western New South Wales.

The annual Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership award is designed to provide an opportunity for a leader in the not-for-profit sector to undertake research in the United States for 3-4 months. Each individual scholarship is valued up to $30,000 for research and professional development in the U.S.

With his Fulbright scholarship, Adam plans to analyse the pathway to generate sustainable jobs for under-represented minorities by studying leading NGOs and historic institutions in the U.S. He will build a Global Alliance between INROADS (his host organisation), CareerTrackers and other NGOs across the U.S. to create a professional jobs consortium for under-represented minorities and unlock ongoing collaboration with a vision to elevate the social and economic impact of organisations and their beneficiaries.

Congratulations to Adam and the 2019 Fulbright Scholarship recipients!
