ABOUT ASF

DONATE NOW

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.

ASF is a proud member of Philanthropy Australia.

McKinsey NFP Leadership Scholarships 2020

Not-for-Profit Leadership Development Scholarships

Applications close February 2020

Young Leaders Forum

Not-for-profit leaders are under enormous pressure to balance instinct with insight, fortitude with flexibility, and performance with recovery. Leadership cannot be taught like a language; it requires nurturing through inspiration, intervention, opportunity, and practice.

We're delighted to offer not-for-profit leaders that very opportunity in 2020. ASF has once again joined forces with McKinsey & Company to offer the biggest round of leadership scholarships yet!

We're looking for high potential NFP leaders to join likeminded peers for a learning opportunity of a lifetime at McKinsey Academy's Young Leaders Forum and Executive Leadership Program.


Young Leaders Forum

The Young Leaders Forum (YLF) provides participants with the necessary skills, ways of thinking, and insights to become a better leader in a world of accelerating disruptive change, by maintaining a radical focus on what is within their control. With a focus on strengths and stretch, YLF develops unique, inspirational, and supportive leaders through the layers of your organisation.

APPLICATIONS CLOSE 10 FEBRUARY 2020 AT 5PM AEDT.


Executive Leadership Program

The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is a ‘hands on’ leadership development program that develops self-aware leaders who have the capability and conviction to lead in the age of complexity and disruption. This program accelerates the development of senior talent by increasing self-awareness, exploring topics with a diverse faculty of leaders and coaches, and personalising insights within groups of external peers.

APPLICATIONS CLOSE 12 FEBRUARY 2020 AT 5PM AEDT.

Harvard Club of Australia Nonprofit Fellowships 2020

STUDY AT HARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL

Applications close 4 February

Harvard Club of Australia

In recognition of the strong social and economic significance of the non-profit sector to the Australian community, the Harvard Club of Australia (HCA) is offering two fellowships for NFP CEOs to attend the highly regarded six-day Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management (SPNM) course at Harvard Business School in July 2020.

ASF is proud to support HCA once again by facilitating and managing the application process this year.

Now in its 20th year, the Harvard Club of Australia Nonprofit Fellowships help fulfil the increasing demand for managerial skills and strategic decision-making within the NFP sector.

Today's NFP organisations are faced with shifting demands for services, mounting financial pressures, and diverse operational challenges. To fulfil their missions, nonprofit leaders must step up their game and create organisations that can thrive in the midst of change.

Fellowship recipients will spend six days immersed in a rich learning experience and connect with other NFP leaders from around the world, enabling them to share challenges, solutions and ideas with likeminded peers.

We encourage you to share this Fellowship opportunity with others in your circle you think would benefit.

For more information and to apply, please click here.

Applications close Monday 4 February 2020 at 5pm AEDT. Get in quick!
