Applications are now open for a scholarship package promoting best practice dispute resolution.

FairWay Resolution Limited is a leader in the development and delivery of services that prevent and resolve  disputes.  As part of its commitment to leading best practice dispute resolution, FairWay are awarding a scholarship package worth over $10,000.

“We know what a difference dispute resolution can make for those in conflict. That’s why it is so important to encourage fresh thinking and support the dispute resolution profession in New Zealand. A $10,000 contribution will make a big impact on someone’s professional development, and they also have the opportunity for a 12-week placement with the FairWay team,” explains Rhys West, Chief Executive of FairWay.

Applications are invited from anyone working in or studying dispute resolution in New Zealand. 

“It’s great to see the passion and diversity of thinking that’s out there – whether it’s from people beginning their careers or more experienced mediators, adjudicators or arbitrators. The scholarship is open to all who are interested in dispute resolution – so long as you are passionate about preventing and resolving conflict,” says Denise Evans, Principal of Dispute Resolution at FairWay.

This scholarship is a great opportunity from both a research and career development perspective. Last year’s winner used the scholarship to travel and study in Santa Monica with internationally renowned mediator Kenneth Cloke.

The FairWay Resolution Anne Scragg Scholarship was established following Anne’s retirement in 2015, in celebration of her outstanding contribution to dispute resolution. The scholarship aims to continue her legacy within the profession, and Anne is invited to sit on the Scholarship’s Panel each year.
