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 the Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Fund of AusSchol Incorporated, an Australian registered charity, ABN 83 420 919 581.

ASF works with a number of Education Partners and Supporters to access and make scholarships available in a growing range of leadership and management training programs. These include post graduate university diploma, certificate and degree courses, short management and other training programs and specialized 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 commissions 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 Current Scholarships Available in “Scholarships” & “FAQs”.

ASF is a proud member of Philanthropy Australia.

AICD NFP Governance Scholarships 2019

140 AICD Governance Scholarships for NFPs Australia-wide

Applications close 20 June

AICD Scholarships

In partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD), ASF are pleased to announce 140 governance education scholarships for not-for-profits across Australia in 2019/20!

In the face of increasing complexity and demand on not-for-profits, good governance has never been more important for the not-for-profit sector. The AICD scholarship program will enable leaders of small NFP organisations in each state and territory to develop their skills and capabilities to be the leaders of the future.

The scholarships will allow board directors, the executives who report to them, and those who aspire to join a NFP board in the near future to attend the AICD's highly regarded Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors course.

Each scholarship covers 100% of the associated course fees and will be offered to non-executive directors and senior executives of NFP organisations who would otherwise be unable to attend governance education programs due to the financial constraints of the organisation.
