Sport NZ announces Future Leaders Scholarship

Sport NZ announces Future Leaders Scholarship
February 27, 2018

Sport NZ has announced a new $10,000 scholarship to be awarded to an emerging leader as part of this year’s New Zealand Sport and Recreation Awards.

Announcing the scholarship, Sport NZ Chief Executive Peter Miskimmin stated “as an organisation we’re absolutely committed to helping our partners identify and develop great leaders.

“Maintaining a pipeline of emerging leaders is critical to the success of New Zealand’s sporting sector, as is developing those we have to ensure they are best equipped to deal with the changing landscape of sport and recreation in New Zealand,”

“We are looking for star performers who have already shown the potential to become a successful leader and through this make a major contribution to our sporting sector.”

Applicants for the Sport NZ Future Leaders Scholarship must be aged 40 or under and already have runs on the board, including a proven track record of leading teams and projects, building relationships inside and outside their organisation and showing a commitment to their community and to the sector.

The $10,000 scholarship will go towards furthering their leadership development, with initiatives funded through the scholarship to be agreed by Sport NZ in consultation with the applicant’s employer.

The Future Leaders Scholarship complements the Sport NZ’s Leadership Framework, developed in partnership with Sport Wellington, which will also be launched later this year.

The New Zealand Sport and Recreation Awards are organised and hosted by Sport NZ to recognise and celebrate excellence from across New Zealand’s sport and recreation sector.

Now in their 11th year, the Awards highlight the commitment and dedication of individuals, clubs, local government authorities and regional and national sporting bodies to enriching New Zealanders’ lives through sport and active recreation.

Winners will be announced at the annual Sport and Recreation Awards dinner, which this year will be held in Wellington on Monday 28th May 2018 to coincide with Sport NZ’s Connections Conference – the annual conference for leaders in the sport and recreation sector.

Entries close on Wednesday 7th March 2018 with finalists announced the week of 6th April 2018.
