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.

The Australian Scholarships Foundation is delighted to announce a brand new partnership with the Asia-Pacific Centre for Social Investment & Philanthropy (ACSIP), Faculty of Business and Enterprise at Swinburne University of Technology. Swinburne is a national leader in education and research in relation to philanthropy. As a university they are strongly committed to transformative education and have demonstrated a strong commitment to social change.

“Philanthropy offers new ways for approaching old problems and smart solutions for new ones – and thought leadership is critical for its success,” says John Fitzgerald, Director of Asia-Pacific Research Centre for Social Investment and Philanthropy. “At Swinburne, our students learn solutions as well as problems, what works and what doesn’t, from practitioners and experts. With the help of ASF scholarships even more students will have the opportunity to learn and to lead.”

Swinburne gladly supports the ASF initiative to enhance the management and accountability of not-for-profit organisations by offering up to two (2x) places for study in their Master of Social Investment and Philanthropy (apply now!).
