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.

Corey Payne - NSW Young Australian of the Year

ASF Scholar Corey Payne named 2013 NSW Young Australian of the Year

Corey Payne is mainly known for his talent as an NRL footballer with the Canterbury Bulldogs. However it is his passion for getting high school kids in southwest Sydney to university that has brought him a different kind of recognition when he was recently named NSW Young Australian of the Year. Corey is the founder and Chairman of Future Direction Network, a not-for-profit organisation that provides scholarships, mentoring and career advice to young people who might not otherwise make it to university.

NSW Premier, Hon Barry O'Farrell, presents Corey Payne with award.
