Scholarship means financial freedom to explore leadership opportunities

Jill Clark (MALP), one of the 2018 New Zealand Institute of Management Foundation Scholarship recipients, has told NZIMF trustees that the $15,000 scholarship gave her the financial freedom to explore leadership opportunities that would have otherwise been out of her reach.

She says she feels privileged to have been one of two 2018 recipients of the scholarship.

“Thank you for those opportunities. I feel truly privileged and grateful that I was selected to be a recipient.”

Jill Clark wrote that in May she began her research project after having completed a successful 12 months in the Masters of Advanced Leadership Practice programme at Massey University.

“August saw me start my dream job as the village manager of a retirement village in Orewa. The first four months in the position have been amazing and I have been able to use much of what I have learned from my study.

“Beginning a new job whilst completing a Masters degree tested my ability as a leader.

“I have now completed the requirements for my Masters degree having received an A- for my research report; I am extremely proud of my result.”

She will be undertaking leadership development with the company which she now works for, as it has its own leadership programme and she has also been asked to contribute ideas that will support what has already been developed.

 Applications for the 2019 NZ Institute of Management Foundation scholarships closed on September 30, 2018 and the selection process is about to start. The scholarships are open to postgraduate students studying at Massey University. For more information see
