ICF Scholarship Program

We partner with ICF Foundation, to ensure coaching is made available to underrepresented populations

Coach Scholarship Program

Sunlight Academy together with ICF Foundation, as part of our joint mission, also aims to offer coach education that is culturally relevant and that aligns with the United Nations 2030 Agenda. By offering a spot in our coaching accredited Level 1 program and by partnering with the ICF Foundation, we are excited and happy to be part of the driving force within the coaching profession to promote social impact through access to education!


To ensure that coaching is made available to most of the world population, to diverse groups, and also to underrepresented populations, and with the purpose to increase focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, SunLight Academy – an accredited educational organization – has chosen to partner with the ICF Foundation Scholarship Program to offer scholarships for individual coaching education opportunities in the ICF Africa region and ICF North America urban areas.
