SMART Scholarships Increase Funding
7 May 2007 at 1:54 pm

The ASI SMART Company Scholarship Fund for Not for Profit education opportunities has boosted its 2007 funding allocation to match the growing number applications.

The Fund provides financial assistance in the form of scholarships and education subsidies.

The Scholarship fund has now been increased to $25,000 (up to $2,000 per individual) per year. Any study that the applicant wants to undertake must be directly relevant to their professional development in the Not for Profit sector.

Recipients of the latest round of funding are from Wellington Free Ambulance,
the youth services provider Whitelion, Orana Family Services, AIDS Council of New South Wales, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and St John Ambulance.

They will share $7000 in funding for training in fundraising, project management and paramedic skills.

ASI works with more than 400 Australasian fundraising organisations and associations providing software solutions and support via its leading product iMIS.

Some 26 organisations applied for the scholarships in the March round.

ASI managing director and fund chair Paul Ramsbottom says the word is clearly out that there is chance to gain real skills to make the sector smarter.

Ramsbottom says he was inspired to establish the fund after attending a fundraising course as a sponsor some years ago. He saw how relatively small dollar amounts make major impacts and he says he decided to establish his fund to “help people learn how to fish for themselves”.

$18,000 in funding remains for upcoming rounds the next of which will be announced in June. Details at: www.advsol.com/ap/scholarship.
