| Paying It Forward
If you or your business has previously been granted a scholarship towards capability development with us and through this you have prospered, there is no better way show your appreciation than to 'pay it forward' to another deserving Kiwi business owner or leader.
It is this continuous sense of appreciation and generosity from our community that helps us drive the capability of more Kiwi businesses forward and as a sponsor knowing you are elevating both a business, an individual and in most cases whole communities, who benefit from our assistance.
If you would like to Pay It Forward to a Kiwi business that is set to join you as another key part of New Zealand's core business makeup, either FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW or contact your Icehouse Growth Partner.
| Owner Manager Programme Cohort Donation
As the saying goes, if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. As we’ve seen from the more than 4,000 Kiwi business owner managers who’ve experienced The Icehouse since 2001, when they come together in this way - they go far, far, further.
You've experienced this yourselves and most likely still do with the strong connections you have made to other Kiwi business owners that have gone with you along your journey thus far.
A cohort donation is one that reaches out to another Kiwi business owner and draws them not only into the common Icehouse community but also into your kinship and supportive collective. This is where together your journey can continue by backing the innovation and grit of others just like you.
If you and your cohort would like to support and sponsor a scholarship either FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW or contact your Icehouse Growth Partner.
| Apply & Receive
As a Kiwi business owner manager or leader, you know your potential, you know what you could accomplish with the right backing and advice from other skilled business leaders. As financial contributions can ease the strain on committing to a development programme for some business owners, with support from our generous partners and alumni we are able to provide scholarships throughout the year.
Make sure you SIGN UP TO OUR EMAILS to make sure you are informed of all upcoming opportunities.
Business owners who want to be considered for a scholarship must complete and submit an application form before the deadline supplied by the Customer Growth Partner. The recipient of each scholarship will be decided by an Icehouse Panel and announced individually. In some circumstances, a scholarship will be attached to a sponsor who may also be involved in the decision-making process.
Scholarships are awarded for a specific programme and cannot be transferred to another programme unless permission is granted by The Icehouse.
We strongly recommend having a discussion with one of our Growth Partners before submitting an application for our scholarship fund.
Our Customer Growth Partners can also advise on application deadlines for upcoming programmes.
