The ICNZ and ANZIIF Scholarship recognises and supports the professional growth and development of insurance industry practitioners living and working in New Zealand. A prize of up to NZ$10,000 will be awarded to a professional from the insurance industry to attend an international conference or seminar programme which will provide an insurance industry or leadership-based development opportunity.
Tim Grafton, Chief Executive of ICNZ – Te Kāhui Inihua o Aotearoa – encourages its members to support applications for the scholarship. "We are proud to support the ongoing development of our industry, which is critical if we are to maintain pace with the ever-changing insurance needs of our customers and communities. This year’s topic, and its focus on the pandemic, really delves into understanding the sector and how it can continue to evolve and change."
Investing in people and the future
"ICNZ and ANZIIF are committed to investing in people and building the next generation of future industry leaders," added Prue Willsford, ANZIIF Chief Executive Officer.
To apply, entrants must submit a 2,500-word essay to provided questions on the 2021 topic: “Discuss what you think are the most important lessons, experiences or challenges arising from the pandemic and how they may change or benefit the general insurance sector in the future.”
