2022 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership

Funded by Perpetual & Supported by Australian Scholarships Foundation

Fulbright Australia, Perpetual and ASF are pleased to offer the 2022 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership for the tenth year running. After the superb quality and volume of past year's recipients, we are looking forward to awarding the 2022 scholarship to yet another deserving candidate in the not-for-profit sector.

A Fulbright award is more than a Scholarship – it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering “leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures… It is a modest program with an immodest aim – the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilised, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past.” Since its establishment, the Fulbright Program has grown to become the largest educational exchange program in the world, operating in over 160 countries. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, Fulbright Australia have awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni.

Valued at $30,000, the Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership is the first Fulbright Scholarship for the not-for-profit sector in Australia. It provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an emerging leader in the charitable not-for-profit sector to undertake a program of research and/or professional development in the United States for a period of 3-4 months.

Since its inception in 2013, the non-profit Fulbright has given NFP leaders an opportunity like none other to improve their skills and knowledge, exchange information with peers in Australia and the U.S., as well as join the prestigious alumni of Fulbright Scholars worldwide.

Merry Christmas

This year has no doubt been challenging, but the team at Australian Scholarships Foundation wish you a happy and safe break over Christmas and New Year.

We are taking some time to recharge and ASF will reopen on 4 January 2021.

We'd like to thank all our many supporters - our education partners, our corporate and philanthropic supporters and the many other friends of ASF for their generosity throughout 2020. Together, we delivered $1.5m in programs to NFP staff, executives and boards this year alone.

Without you, ASF would be unable to fund and facilitate the hundreds of scholarships that give the inspiring leaders in Australia's NFP sector the opportunities to access education, training and professional development across the country. 

And most of all, we salute the thousands of NFP leaders who inspire ASF to do more. We have great plans for even more scholarship opportunities in 2021.

Wishing you a joyous and happy break. We will see you in the New Year!

Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders

Perpetual, the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) and Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) are pleased to make 17 scholarships available for Indigenous leaders to attend the AICD's Company Directors Course for Indigenous Business Leaders in Perth in June 2021.

These scholarships are focused exclusively on supporting Indigenous communities and will be funded by the Fred P Archer Charitable Trust (managed by Perpetual) and the AICD, administered by the ASF and delivered by the AICD.

ASF’s CEO, Sam Sayers, says, “We are delighted to be able to support indigenous leaders to access governance education...These scholarships provide opportunities that may otherwise be difficult for Indigenous communities to access, and we see first-hand the benefits that governance training brings to recipients and their organisations.”

Together, ASF, AICD and Perpetual are offering a combination of full and partial scholarships (valued at up to $7,600 each) to enable Indigenous leaders Australia-wide to develop their skills by exploring the director’s role and responsibilities. Throughout the program, leaders will build upon their governance capabilities and affect positive and long-lasting impact for their organisations.

Applications are now open to new or experienced directors, public officials and senior executives reporting to a board who need to understand governance issues in depth.

Our Young Leaders Forum Scholars

Scholar Spotlight YLF

During these uncertain times, our young leaders are being called upon to do more and be more than ever before.

So, to help inspire, nurture and lead our young leaders, once again ASF is partnering with the McKinsey Academy to offer the 2021 Young Leaders Forum (YLF) scholarships. The 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 with the skills to lead themselves and their teams more effectively.

With applications now open for the 2021 Young Leaders Forum Scholarships, we spoke to some of our latest alumni to find out more about their experiences how the YLF has changed their lives.

One year on from completing the YLF, recipient Alan Wu found that his perception of leadership had changed: “The YLF was a distinctive and well-structured opportunity to take a step back from the everyday pressures of work to learn about leading ourselves, leading people and leading organisations.” Alan is the youngest member of the Board of Directors at Oxfam Australia, and continues to improve the organisation’s overall performance, strategic direction, effective governance and leadership.

Angela Lewis from Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation was one of our 2019 recipients. She participated in the YLF at a critical point in her career where she was just starting to transition to being a Captain, and noted that, “completing the YLF allowed me to take some time out to think about myself as a leader under the guidance of the course facilitators; something I don’t ever recall doing before.” Overall, Angela said that, “the knowledge gained from the Young Leaders Forum has helped me to be a better leader through such an unprecedented situation."

Our last featured scholar is Ryan Kiddle, who is a Senior Manager at The Disability Trust. Another 2019 recipient, Ryan shares that his experience in the YLF has since assisted him in supporting others to become resilient in a changing environment. He recalls that the program taught him, “the importance of self-care and reflection in leadership, and the practical strategies that one can put into practice to look after yourself both mentally and physically.”

You too could join the ranks of Alan, Angela and Ryan, and win a Young Leaders Forum Scholarship for 2021. We encourage all emerging NFP leaders to join these likeminded peers for a learning opportunity of a lifetime!

Applicants Australia-wide are welcome to apply.

Our Executive Leadership Program Scholars

Scholar Spotlight

During this period of intense change and uncertainty, not-for-profit leaders are being called upon to do more and be more than ever before. This year has shown us that leaders need to be nurtured through inspiration, intervention, opportunity, and practice.

To enable that, the Australian Scholarships Foundation (ASF) is partnering again with the McKinsey Academy to offer 30 scholarships for the Executive Leadership Program (ELP) in 2021. ELP is a hands-on leadership development program that develops self-aware leaders who have the capability and conviction to lead in the age of complexity and disruption. After 91% of recent applicants reported they would not be able to attend a program of this calibre without a scholarship, ASF and McKinsey Academy joined forces to support NFP leaders when they need it most by giving them the tools to thrive in good times and bad.

With applications now open for the 2021 Executive Leadership Program Scholarships, we spoke to some of our latest alumni to find out more about their experiences and life after ELP.
