ICF Michigan Scholarship Program

ICF Michigan is launching a scholarship program to support current or prospective ICF Michigan coaches enrolled in an International Coach Federation Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) or Approved Coaching Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) program. The scholarship program is in alignment with our policy of giving back to the community we live and work in and supporting Michigan coaches.

Scholarship Overview

The ICF Michigan Coaching Scholarship Program is designed to support and promote the highest standards of professional coaching in Michigan and serve our vibrant community where coaches learn, grow, and succeed to best serve our clients. In keeping with this, scholarships are offered to individuals who are studying to become a coach or continuing their coach education and who meet the following criteria:

  • Current ICF Michigan member or prospective ICF Michigan member.
  • Enrolled and studying in an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program (ACTP) or Approved Coaching Specific Training Hours (ACSTH) program.
  • Active participation as a volunteer in an ICF Michigan committee.

All applications are considered on a case by case basis. ICF Michigan offers four scholarships per year. We are accepting applications for 2015.
