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.

100% MBA Scholarships for NFPs Australia-wide

Applications close 10 August

Master of Business Administration

Fulfil your dream of studying an MBA - and do it with a 100% scholarship - thanks to ASF and Kaplan Business School.

We're offering TEN not-for-profit leaders the chance to complete a world-class MBA qualification with a scholarship valued at $40,800.

Kaplan Business School’s MBA will provide you with valuable practical skills that will allow you to excel in a dynamic professional environment, apply strategic thinking skills, master key business challenges and become a successful leader. Benefit from the flexibility and diversity of a general Master of Business Administration or choose one of seven specialisations.

Recent scholarship recipient, Nikki Jordan of Grand Pacific Health Limited, began her MBA in 2019 and is already finding it valuable. “I have already gotten more from the course than I had hoped. It is no stretch to say that if it wasn’t for ASF and KBS providing such a generous scholarship, I would not have been able to enrol in this MBA."

Successful applicants will be able to study online or at any of the five campuses of Kaplan Business School, with a full-time or part-time study load, beginning in either Trimester 3, 2020 or Trimester 1, 2021.

If you're a senior NFP professional, manager or emerging leader, this is an incredible opportunity to advance your career, expand your professional network, and gain the skills you need to lead effectively and strategically. Here's how an MBA can boost your career in the NFP sector.
