Southland Newcomer Leadership Scholarship

Invercargill City Council, Southland District Council, and Gore District Council are excited to announce the launch of the Southland Newcomer Leadership Scholarship.

The purpose of this scholarship is to support newcomers in the Southland region to grow their leadership skills so they are well positioned to be leaders in our business, community and not-for-profit sectors. The scholarship is available to “ethnic newcomers” living in the Southland region who wish to attend the Southland Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Academy programme.

The definition of “ethnic newcomers” is very wide and includes working migrants, former refugees, and international students.

There are currently five scheduled dates for the programme in 2021 with locations including Edendale, Invercargill, Lumsden, and Gore.

Please find the application form here and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with Gemma Crawford 021 678 181.

Applications for the May intake close Wednesday 5 May and closing date for the August intake is Sunday 15 August.
