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 future of philanthropy in a changing civil society: In conversation with Stanford PACS

The future of philanthropy in a changing civil society: In conversation with Stanford PACS

Stanford PACS

Now, more than ever, we must discuss the changing nature of technology, race, and civil society. The global COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated the global inequalities that exist, shown not only by the effect of the crisis, but also by the response to it.

This crisis lets us reflect upon these inequities and ask the questions that will allow us to build resilience and strengthen our global response to these issues.

On Thursday 6 August, you can join international sector leaders from Stanford University’s Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society (Stanford PACS) and Australian philanthropy experts from Perpetual, including Lucy Bernholz, Jane Magor and Rob Reich, for a live panel discussion.

Hosted by Catriona Fay, this FREE webinar will offer new perspectives on the key role of philanthropy and the NFP sector as we venture into a post COVID-19 world where our impact is ever important.

This webinar is facilitated by Perpetual and Stanford PACS, in partnership with ASF.

We encourage you to challenge your thinking and get involved by registering here.

McKinsey Academy Young Leaders Forum Scholarships, Round 2 - 2020

Scholarships for Emerging NFP Leaders

Applications close 20 July

Young Leaders Forum

We're looking for emerging NFP leaders to join likeminded peers for a learning opportunity of a lifetime at McKinsey Academy's Young Leaders Forum beginning in September 2020.

The Young Leaders Program (YLF) is a global leadership development program that provides participants with the necessary skills, ways of thinking, and insights to become a better leader in a world of accelerating disruptive change. With a focus on strengths and stretch, YLF develops unique, inspirational, and supportive leaders through the layers of your organisation.

YLF is designed to benefit emerging high potential future leaders, who typically have between 7 and 12 years of work experience, and are making the transition into people leadership roles, as well as taking on more responsibility for driving the strategy and execution of their organisations.

CEOs of small NFPs, social enterprises or start-ups may also find the course beneficial, as they start to build their organisations and manage people.

Applicants Australia-wide are welcome to apply.
