The Aus­tralian and New Zealand In­sti­tute of In­surance and Fi­nance (ANZIIF) and the In­surance Coun­cil of New Zealand (ICNZ) an­nounced sub­mis­sions are open for its 2017 schol­ar­ship.

Cre­ated to in­spire and build lead­er­ship po­ten­tial among young in­surance pro­fes­sion­als and to pro­vide sup­port in help­ing them achieve their goals, the schol­ar­ship of­fers a prize of NZ$10,000 to at­tend an in­ter­na­tional in­dus­try event, lead­er­ship con­fer­ence or sem­i­nar pro­gramme.

“The schol­ar­ship will not only give the win­ner new skills and knowl­edge to help them to de­velop their lead­er­ship abil­i­ties, it will also en­hance their un­der­stand­ing of the in­dus­try in a global con­text, and al­low them to rep­re­sent New Zealand among their in­ter­na­tional coun­ter­parts,” said Tim Grafton, ICNZ Chief Ex­ec­u­tive.

“In to­day’s global mar­ket, the op­por­tu­nity for the next gen­er­a­tion of in­surance lead­ers to grow and de­velop their lead­er­ship skills, in­ter­na­tional busi­ness net­works, and in­dus­try knowl­edge is in­valu­able,” said ANZIIF CEO Prue Wills­ford.

To apply, en­trants must sub­mit a 2,500-word es­say in re­sponse to a pro­vided ques­tion sur­round­ing tech­nol­ogy and reg­u­la­tion chang­ing com­pet­i­tive land­scape and lead­ing in­sur­ers and bro­kers to eval­u­ate their busi­ness strat­egy at a fun­da­men­tal level.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close on 30 Oc­to­ber 2017 with the win­ner an­nounced in late 2017.
