Certification Scholarship for Organizational Psychology Students

Certification Scholarship for Organizational Psychology Students (for Masters and Ph.D. Students).

Coaching is one of the most sought-after topics in the organizational world thanks to increasing evidence on its effectiveness and impact. McKinsey’s recent research puts coaching among the Top Skills for the Future of Work with many other skills on the list covered in coach education and organizational coaching programs. Some see coaching where counselling was in its first decades, with growing support, proof from new journals and publications, and reputable universities offering higher education programs, courses and certifications on this topic.

To support the growing literature, as part of our Research Centre Strategy, Maslow Centre is proud to announce Scholarships for I/O Psychology Students (Masters and Ph.D. level) who want to research organizational coaching. As pioneers in coaching, we encourage I/O Psychology students to experience our best-in-class program, get their coaching certification while developing research on coaching, leadership and workplace culture.
