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.

Farewell to Mandy

Pictured above: Our intern Mandy and CEO of ASF, Amy Lyden

ASF recently said farewell to our lovely intern, Mandy. After a solid five weeks working in the office, assisting with the daily running of ASF, toughening up our database and researching scholarship opportunities, Mandy headed back home to Hong Kong to continue her studies.

This is the fourth year that ASF has hosted an intern from Hong Kong Baptist University. As a not-for-profit organisation, we have been very fortunate to receive the extra help and it has certainly made a positive impact on the smoothness of operations and general office culture.

ASF are extremely grateful to each of our interns, most recently Mandy, and we want to thank them for all their hard work, professionalism and dedication to the job.
