Learn about the selection criteria, grant timeline, and how to apply

The IFCE is committed to supporting the next generation of coach leaders by providing opportunities for economic empowerment and support. We are excited to announce that we are currently providing two, $500 grants for our 2023 Life, Leadership, & Executive Coaching Program as part of this commitment. Grants are awarded the last month of class and are applied towards the final monthly payment, or in advance if tuition is paid in full.

IFCE grants are intended to reduce the overall financial burden for prospective students who have the means to pay, but may take on a burden as a result. This grant is for students who demonstrate clear excitement for our program and the coaching profession, and have the means to pay but would suffer loss of income from childcare, wages due to reduced hours at a job, or would need to take on high interest debt to pay for tuition.

This application is for prospective IFCE students who identify with all or part of the previous paragraph and have or intend to register for cohorts occurring in April or August of 2023. You also have the option to record your responses to each of the application questions instead of submitting written responses. Please make sure you read the eligibility requirements, criteria, and award timeline below BEFORE completing. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMNTS
