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.

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.
