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 Governance Scholarships 2019/20 - Thank You

ASF AICD


Congratulations to 140 AICD Scholarship

Recipients Australia-wide


ASF and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) have recently awarded 140 scholarships for the AICD's Governance Foundations for Not-for-Profit Directors course, designed specifically for board directors, chairs and executives of charitable NFP organisations. The scholarships were offered to individuals Australia-wide who work with organisations with less than $2 million turnover.

ASF was delighted to partner with the AICD to facilitate these scholarships by managing the application and assessment process. This year, we received over 730 scholarship applications from NFP board directors, chairs and senior leaders looking to develop a deeper knowledge of the responsibilities of directorship, financial governance and performance issues relating to NFP organisations.

Congratulations to the 140 individuals who were awarded a place in this program and thank you to all of the 734 applicants for your hard work and dedication to good governance. We encourage you to reapply next year and keep a look out for additional opportunities for professional development via ASF's website. Click here to read the general application feedback.

A big thank you also to our dedicated Assessment Panel who spent countless cumulative hours reviewing the 700+ applications. Your expertise and commitment to ASF's vision is unrivalled and invaluable!
