Weatherhead Executive Education Coaching Scholarships


A donor is looking to support the development of leaders in the non-profit or governmental sector who want to improve their leadership and management skills through coaching. A $3,000 scholarship will be provided to be used towards the Weatherhead Coaching Certificate for individuals who want to add a coaching skillset to their leadership toolbox. This scholarship will be awarded through individual recruitment and a competitive application process.

Weatherhead Advanced Coaching Certificate - Description

The multi-day program includes evidence-based coach education, peer and mentor coaching, reflection guides, and the opportunity to practice coaching and receive feedback from a Master Coach.

Participants will discover what drives sustained change; how visioning opens, strengthens, and clarifies direction; the generative impact of positive emotions in coaching; and how to peel away the defenses and assumptions that impact the ability to change.

Cost of the Weatherhead Advanced Coaching Certificate

  • Individual Participants: $9,035
  • Nonprofit and CWRU Alumni: $8,514

Since this certificate was first introduced - more than 20 years ago, we have heard that the cost of getting a coaching credential has been a hurdle that many leaders in the non-profit/governmental sector cannot overcome. This scholarship will help qualified individuals acquire the Advanced Weatherhead Coaching Certificate.

Scholarship Budget

Once selected through the application process, individuals would receive the Nonprofit and CWRU Alumni rate and a scholarship of $3,000 bringing the total cost down to $5,514.

Board Certification

Weatherhead Executive Education is an approved Board Certified Coach (BCC) education provider by the Center for Credentialing & Education (CCE).
