Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching


Marshall Goldsmith Scholarship


What is the Marshall Goldsmith Scholarship?

The Marshall Goldsmith Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to those who are developing their coaching skills by enrolling in any of the Marshall Goldsmith certification programs.  In 2020 the program will provide more than $1,000,000 in financial support to future Marshall Goldsmith certified executive coaches. 

Two different scholarships are awarded: ‘Full’ and ‘Half’Applicants should complete only one application and will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.  Scholarships can be applied to training programs from March through June.

The deadline to apply is March 27th.  The application process is divided into two parts.  The first part is made of a few professional questions - including how the scholarship would impact your professional aspirations and how you might “pay it forward.”  You are given a 250 word limit for each question to force brevity and conciseness.  The second part asks you to upload your CV/Profile.  The application takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.  Both parts must be completed for your application to be received.
