Aspiring Leaders' Forum
Waikato Management School is offering two $1,500 sponsorships for students to take part in the Aspiring Leaders’ Forum. Applications close Friday, 12 April 2019.
The Aspiring Leaders’ Forum (ALF) on faith and values will be hosting their fourteenth forum on 27 - 30 June 2019 in Wellington. The annual event brings together a diverse group of committed and courageous young leaders from across Aotearoa New Zealand.
Guided by facilitators and esteemed national leaders, young people discuss leadership, faith and values over four days.
While Members of Parliament host aspects of the Forum, the focus is not purely politics. Instead it is about encouraging young people to become better leaders in their sphere of influence - be it community, arts, business, politics or sports.
- A day spent in Parliament House
- Keynote addresses from senior politicians
- Keynote addresses from inspiring leaders of varying societal spheres
- Small group discussions
- A community service project
- A sports afternoon and an epic barn dance
Sponsorship to the value of $1,500 per student will cover the Forum registration fee (includes accommodation and meals for the duration of the Forum)
To be considered for the ALF sponsorship, you must:
- Be aged between 18 - 26
- Be able to demonstrate strong leadership potential in your sphere of influence
- Be a full-time Waikato Management School student
- Have already completed at least 120 points towards your degree
- Have a grade-point average of at least B+ (75-79%)
- Be a New Zealand Citizen or Permanent Resident
- Be willing to take photos/videos of your experience in Wellington, and write a short debrief for the WMS website once you return home.
We're looking for those individuals who demonstrate strong leadership potential, those who have genuine appreciation for different perspectives and for individuals with diverse interests, backgrounds and ambitions.
